35th Infantry Division

35th Division Then & Now: Tintange, Luxembourg
Then & Now: The 1st Battalion of the 137th Infantry Regiment, 35th Division, marches off from Tintange to the town of Surré, Luxembourg to support the 2nd Battalion. Taken on December 27, 1944. The farmhouse in the background is still there today. On December 27, 1944 it became the Headquarters for the 1st Battalion when they marched out of Tintange. The small stone building on the road junction was probably some sort of border surveillance structure. The foundations of it are also still there. The border between Belgium and Luxembourg lies between these two villages.
