    I wondered when I was typing list if some of the names might be nicknames as happens a lot in military. I did not try to check anything as I did the list, just copied as written. Thanks for all you do for this group of Veterans. As I have spent some time checking the pics I see that my Dad also identified #83 as Pvt Corley and I could not rule out that is James Corley.

    I typed the info as it was on the photo even though I know some of the names were spelled incorrectly. One typo is mine, on the photo Lamanowize is the spelling on the photo. I wish that area near the trees and the trees had been preserved. Would have been nice to go over with metal detector and to get pics of the trees.

    I have crossed the numbers on my photo to the numbers on the photo here. I noticed that there is a couple of people that were previously identified that are identified differently on my list.

    I am from Watertown,TN and that is another part of my connection. My mother and father meet when he was here on maneuvers and stayed in touch. Sometime after his return they got married and had 6 kids of which I am #2. We lived in Baltimore till his passing and moved back to Watertown. We lived on the edge of town and across the street was woods. I spent most of my childhood in those woods and there was 2 very large Oak trees that were covered with carvings from the troops. They must have been camped there. The trees are gone now and the field is covered with houses. The only thing I remember that was carved was "KILROY WAS HERE" but there was a lot of initials.

    After comparing the ones that are identified in your photo to the ones in my photo the numbers on my photo run left to right starting in first row. At the top a small corner is torn off and there was something written there on the back I think was B CO after that is " 160 ENGR (c) B. N. January 13 1944 Camp Rucker Alabama " . I don't know what the (c) B. N. means if anyone can help.The list then lists 1 - 60 with rank, last name, and Platoon. Should I post them on here? I am new so not sure what I am doing.

    My Father is #56 in this photo. Private Kenneth McBride Baltimore, MD. I have this same photo and it has numbers on the back with rank and last name up to number 60 but does not tell how the numbers run.

    My Father Kenneth McBride was in the 160th Co B I have the same photo of Co B that I saw on here. He is #56 in the photo. I;m glad to fing some info as he passed away in 1960 when I was 7 yr old. The only info I have is the photo, the burial record and his Medals. He was wounded somewhere in Europe and lost his arm at the shoulder. If anyone has any info I would be very interested.
