In the wake of advancing Allied armies in Southern and Western Europe, specialist officers provided by Allied civil affairs commissions assist and advise local authorities on the repair and preservation of historical monuments, fine arts, and archival treasures that have suffered damage in war action. Belgian workers repair damage to the choir entrance of the church of Notre Dame in Namur, Belgium, while Lieutenant Daniel J. Kern, U.S. Army fine arts specialist, supervises the work from a ladder.
