Maps of Anzio by Hugh Ames - 504th PIR
#1

This email is from my friend Hugh Ames, 82nd Airborne, 504th PIR. These maps relate to Anzio in Jan of 44.

 

Thanks Hugh. Very interesting. Below is his letter to me, and a few of the boys.

 

Notice 36th Engineers on first map, and designation of the 39th Engineers, 2nd Bn on third map.

 

1. MARION: OVERLAY 1 SHOULD BE HELPFUL TO YOU.

 

2. MITCH AND BALDY OVERLAYS 2-3 SHOULD BE INTERESTING TO YOU TROOPERS !

 

ENJOY

 

HUGH

They weren't supposed to dear. These are maps from where the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment were in January. Hugh gave these to me to place on his airborne website. So happens he thought I'd be especially interested in the first one, since the 36th Engineer Regiment were fighting right there with his airborne unit.
