36th Combat Engineer Archived Footage
#1

Yeee-hawww! Just acquired some film footage from the National Archives in College Park, Maryland, thanks to my private researcher Caroyln Billups. Thanks CB! :armata_PDT_37:

 

There are a few different sections within the footage. I haven't had much of a chance to decipher it yet, but can give you some info.

 

1st section is footage of the 36th Combat Engineers building a wooden bridge. If you look closely at the film when two engineers are using a saw, you can discern a 36th engineers patch on the soldier on the right.

 

The second section shows a medic from the 34th Infantry Division. You can clearly see his Red Bull patch. This one is for you Rocky! :drinkin:

 

The rest looks like Sicily or Italy and maybe some from North Africa, doesn't it?

 

Later in the week I am going to try to improve the imaging. Hope you enjoy it. Pretty cool stuff. :clappin:

Quick info. Just got a call from The head Librarian of the K.C.Ks Library. They want me

to give a talk about WW11 in Italy and bring a photo or two. I am going to take

the pic. of me with Pres. and Mrs. Bush. When they see it I will say-- Where is my

left Hand? And the smile on Mrs. Bush. I f you happen to see her on T V

she will still be smiling.
