Robert E Waters 291st Combat Engineer Bn

Hello, new guy here. Hoping to uncover information on my father, who enlisted in the National Guard at Cleveland Ohio, 07 JUL 1940, activated 15 OCT 1940. I have his WD AGO 53-55, which indicates he was with Hdq Serv Co, 291st Combat Eng Bn when separated 12 OCt 1945. Prior to that I believe he was with the 112th Combat Engineers, and sent to Ireland 14 May 1942.  I know that he eventually ended up at Saunton Sands, as he married my mother, a British girl, there in January 1944.  She is now 96, and has Alzheimer's, but from what she tells me, I believe he helped build the training center there, and was at Slapton Sands during Exercise Tiger. His address on their marriage license is simply "Newquay." I would greatly appreciate anyone who can help fill in the gaps.
