1274th Engineer Construction Battalion

Recommended Posts

In Dec 1944 76 men of the 284th Engr. C. Bn. were sent to London to work with the 1274th Engineer Construction Battalion to build Quonset huts for displaced Londoners.  I've never had any luck finding photos of this construction detail, I'm posting this here in hopes that someday some may turn up.

I find it interesting that something, so mundane (morning reports) at the time, become interesting and precious research material decades later. Our morning reports in the Marine Corps have been done an a computer system for years, so they may, ironically, be much harder to retrieve later.

Ah, I'm sure you can appreciate just how precious these are now. Being able to access these 50, 60, and 70 years later are like finding the crumbs for Hansel and Gretel.
