Ridgway was never in 101st. He was CO 82nd AB Division. In August 1944 he became the first CO of US XVIII Airborne Corps.

S Wright (above):
Of course, you are correct about General Ridgway’s command. I took the original caption from the IWM photo notes that incorrectly list General Ridgway with the 101st Airborne. The caption has been corrected and thank you for bringing this up.
