Searchlight Maintenance

During WWII in France in 1945, two soldiers change the carbon rods in a carbon arc searchlight. In this type of searchlight, the carbon rods are slowly eroded during use and must be regularly replaced to maintain the proper performance. The soldiers are identified in the original caption as Sgt. Arthur Grahame of Akron, Ohio and Pvt. James Nolin of Columbus, Georgia. (U.S. Air Force Photograph.)
