S-4 journal entry 3rd Inf - 540th CE
#1

I have to start typing in a database of all the journal entries I come across. As many of you know, I am reading through a couple of thousand docs from the National Archives. Right now I am in PERUSE mode and trying to scan just to see what's there for me. In the last two days have come across my dad's name (see WWII Engineer section of this forum) and other references to the other divisions and engineer groups. Just ran across this one:

 

S-4 entry March 4, 1945 2200 hours

 

Group was ordered to maintain liason with the 3rd Infantry Division.

 

March 25 2100

 

Received 3rd Infantry Division Filed Order #3, dated 24 Mar 45

 

March 26 0230

 

7th Infantry Regiment supported by 2832nd Engr C Bn and 30th Infantry Regiment supported by 2833rd (dad's) Engr Bn crossed Rhine River.

 

Have run across all kinds of Rhine River crossing maps, etc. Very detailed configuration/communication diagrams etc. Shows pontons, bridges, river flow, etc. Displays order of crossing for inf divs and the engineers. Fascinating docs. I am having a ball going through all this.
