Shelby L. Stanton's WW II ORDER OF BATTLE provides the following:
1276th Engineer Combat Battalion was created from
1st BN, 5th Engineer Battalion, 6 Dec 43, in Iceland;
arrived England, 25 Aug 44;
arrived France-ETO, 25 Sep 44.
26. Central Europe, 22 Mar 44/11 May 45;
34. Rhineland, 15 Sept 44/11 May 45.
I have no casualty information.
It is not relevant, but the battalion was located at
Epernay, France, at war's end, 15 Aug 45.
Please give me his death date, and I will see if I can ID the area he was killed, and some other detail, for your information.
As a combat veteran from WW II, I wish to express my appreciation for this very humane service you are providing
to one of our heroes, Harry J. Lindemann..
Thanks, and best regards,
