The officer in the background in the long overcoat is Major General Charles "Cowboy Pete" Corlett. At the time of the photo he had been in England two months. Prior to that he had led the amphibious assault on Kiska Island in the Aleutian archipelago and commanded the Army's 7th Infantry Division during the invasion of Kwajalein Atoll in the Central Pacific. Impressed by the success of the latter operation, Army Chief of Staff Marshall sent Corlett to England to lead XIX Corps in Normandy. Hoping to contribute the lessons from his amphibious experiences in the Pacific, he was dismayed to find his advice largely ignored.
