"A" Truck, Topeka, KS - Topeka Pure Milk Co

"A" Truck, Topeka, KS - Topeka Pure Milk Co
Creator: Hughes, James Clark, 1888-1964
Date: July 24, 1917
Truck parked on city street with driver and one man standing next to it. The driver is wearing a National Guard uniform. The reference to "A" could mean it belongs to Battery A of the Kansas National Guard. The building sign behind the truck reads "Topeka Pure Milk Company." The two seem unrelated. James Clark Hughes was born in Topeka, Kansas, in 1888, and served in the Mexican Border Conflict, World War I, and World War II. During the latter conflict, he commanded a Philippine regiment (Filipino soldiers led by American officers), which surrendered in 1942 on the Bataan peninsula. Hughes spent the next 41 months in various Japanese P.O.W. camps. He was liberated by Russian forces at Camp Hoten, Manchuria, in 1945. Hughes died in 1964 and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
