Assumimg that Robert returned with the division, I need to add the followng to my post:
There may have been two ships which carried the returning troops, and are reported as follows:
1. Departed 12-mid-45, from Osaka, Japan, the USS CRENSHAW, (units of board ???), Debarkation Point, Seattle P/E, arrived 12-24-45.
2. 12-mid-45, (name unknown), unit on board, 27th ID, debarked Seattle P/E on 12-24-45.
From the unit history, we know that the division came back to Seattle on 12-24-45. Other than one of the QUEENs, there were no ships capable of carryig a division in a single load(about 12,000 men).
I can't identify the ship he went over on.
