Yes, that helps...a lot.
Go to GOOGLE,
which brings up the years 1942/1946.
Go to 44-11-23, and you will note that the 76trh Infantry Division sailed from Boston P/E11 Nov 44, via three ships,
SS BRAZIL, SS SEA OWL and USS MARINE RAVEN.
BRAZIL AND SEA OWL put in at Southhampton, England, 4 Dec 44,
and RAVEN at Plymouth, England, the same date.
There is a footnote by the individual who furnished this information, which you may wish to check out.
I find nothing relating to the return passage.
As for thelisting of the other unit, it may be that since he was a late arrival to ETO, he would have been a "low point" man, not subject to early discharge.
We know that the 76th ID was inactivated in Germany, leaving the low point personnel to be absorbed into other units.
That is most likely when he was assigned to the 10th (???), and was ultimately rotated back to the states with those folks.
Please let me know how you make out. OK ?
