    The note on the back only gives the location and date: Versailles - Sept 24, 1945. No idea what the unit is or who any of the people in the photo are.

    This is the main entrance of the Chateau de Versailles in front of the statue of Louis XIV. Your Grand father and his comrades were visting the Chateau with other Americans on leave. The two ladies are probably French translators:guides for the army.
