Hello, Charles Mullin !
I had previously read your response to Paula, and found it
to be very considerate and informative.
I wish to thank you for this direct message, which sort of
messes up my thinking on some of the more unrecognizable units.
Stanton's WORLD WAR II ORDER OF BATTLE does list the 1885th EABn, and records the sailing/arrival dates I posted, as well as the campaigns.
My impression was/is that his text listed army units exclusively, but perhaps I am wrong. (which wouldn't be the first/last time).
You mention a transfer to a AGF unit later.
Stanton translates AGF to read Army Garrison Force, which brings us back to Old Army.
I know that you have to be right for you were there, but it is a bit confusing.
Thank you again for taking the time and trouble of contacting me. I really appreciate it, especially coming from a fellow combatant from WW II.
Hang in there, my friend.
With best wishes,
