MONTGOMERY, Sir Bernard Law, Viscount (1887-1976). Field Marshal.
Evocative war-time photograph signed ('B.L. Montgomery/Field-Marshal'), with four other World War II generals [1944].

Accompanying Montgomery are Sir Miles Christopher Dempsey (1896-1969, British Army), General Courtney Hodges (1886-1966, American Army), William Hood Simpson (1888-1980, 9th U.S. Army) and Henry Crerar (1888-1965, Canadian Army), all of whom have signed. Montgomery, of course, stands centre stage.

A stamp on the back indicates that the photograph was taken by the War Office. The background is rural and all the generals are heavily bundled-up. Evidently one of a series of official photographs taken by the War Office during the Battle of the Bulge, 1944.
