  Lionel M from France
Posted by: Lionel M - 10-26-2021, 01:41 PM - Forum: Introduce Yourself! - No Replies

Hello everyone

First I would like to thank Marion for creating one account for me !

I am a french passionate of history and especially about the liberation of my department. Most of my researchs are on the 4th armored division who had to fight a hard battle to liberate the town of TROYES. I try to find all the soldiers who died during this battle and i hope the town will recognize them by their deeds and build a monument dedicated to their memories.

The 133th Engineer Combat Battalion played a role in protecting south flank of 4th armored and they lost many men prisonners in a german ambush.

I hope to learn more about the 133TH on this forum.
I already met a veteran's son with the forum. Thank to Eric Aho i had some very interesting elements about the events of the end of August 44.

  1298th Combat Engineers Battalion
Posted by: ehjlsch - 04-28-2021, 07:31 PM - Forum: OTHER WWII UNIT STORIES AND INFO - No Replies

My Dad served with the 1298th Combat Engineers Battalion during WWII.  Unit was activated June 1944 at Camp Rucker, Alabama and deactivated January 1946 in Japan.  I have platoon photos of Company B which has 1st, 2nd, and 3rd platoons and a fourth platoon listed simple as Company B.  Would that not be 4th platoon??  I guess my question is about platoon structure within a Combat Engineers Battalion. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello everyone,  Thanks of permitting me to join in.  My father was a company commander in the Pacific and participated in the battle for Okinawa and at the conclusion of the war went on to help rebuild Japan during the Occupation.  He never spoke about the war and for the most part only know what few stories he did share and what some of his friends told me much later on.  I tried to investigate his service only to be told his records except for a very few had been destroyed in a fire at the St. Louis facility.

We finally persuaded him to take a vacation, when he had retired, and return to Japan.  He located his old friend and interpreter who took him to the building (still standing used as car dealership) that had been his headquarters in Nagoya.  

Wondered if anyone out there had and OB for Okinawa that might go down to company level or at least battalion so that I might be able to try to determine regiment/division he was part of.  Thanks again and I look forward to being a part of this forum.

  235th Battalion - How many companies?
Posted by: Valentino - 03-28-2021, 03:02 PM - Forum: WWII ENGINEERS - No Replies

How many companies did the 235th Battalion have?

Another questions:
on 23 May 1944 the company "B" of the 235th was aggregated to the 91st Reco.

  • What route did he take to get to Rome?
  • What path do you follow the rest of the 235th?
  • What company did Captain Sorrel belong to?
Thanks for the reply.
