116th engineer
Hello all

First i would like to apologize for my poor english, and i hope you will understand what i want to say Angel
I've been able to purchase an helmet shell recently, trough another french collector, but with very nice markings inside : Major William john Dorner, O-342380
It seems he was with the 116th engineer in 1941, maybe 133th a bit later ? i still looking for more informations about that.
i've read here : https://www.idahoheroes.org/116th-engine...alion.html
that the 116th engineer was on Pacific Theater,and that 2 companys have been commited in E.T.O, then the presence of the E.T.O bar on the helmet the makes me wonder
if he hasnt been also in Europe. Huh
