291st Engineer Combat Battalion Roster
#1

I'm researching the 291st ECB and I'm Looking for the Unit Roster. Ive already reserved information on the 291st form the National Archives. Ive also read First Across the Rhine, Engineering the Victory,The Corps of Engineers: The War Against Germany And I reserved a copy of The Damned Engineers.

 

 

If Anyone can help Me I would really appreciate.

Dear Matt:

 

Let's see what I can come up with...

 

I have a few names in my contact list, and will send you their email addresses via a PM on the forum. You can then contact them, and see if anyone has a roster. Wouldn't that be great?

 

I have a two signed books by the Colonel, and had the pleasure to speak with him on the telephone, a few years back. He is quite a man. It's been quite a while since our last correspondence, and he was moved to a nursing home. You can try writing to him. Let me know if anything transpires.

 

Colonel David Pergrin

3 Bridle Rd. Shrewsbury, Pa. 17361-1339

 

If you have no luck regarding the roster after talking with the list of people I am going to send you this afternoon, then I would try contacting the Army Corps of Engineer's Office of History, to see what they have. Their address is listed in the Research section of our forum. Let me know if you have any questions.
