If you want to go further, go to:
which lists the 100+plus Infantry and Armored Divisions.
Bring up each, and drop down the list to ATTACHMENTS, where you will find the 204th included several times, I'm sure.
I can't find a listing of any ships out of NYPE on 2 Jan 44,
nor one arriving NYPE, 26 Oct 45.
That list has been updated, and you MAY locate something at :
