All Our Yesterdays: US Troops in Northern Ireland
The first troops of the United States expeditionary force to Europe arrive in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The troops disembarked at the Spencer Basin and the photograph shows a detachment marching along Duncrue Street. 26/1/1942. That is officially, as naval personnel had already been visiting the port of Londonderry, civilian contractors were already building USAAF bases, notably Station 597(Langford Lodge), & some AAF crew were flying with RAF for experience, with Coastal Command.
