Robert E Waters 291st Combat Engineer Bn
#1

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.
