Documents to request about unit transfers WWII
Got a question for you.
What document types (morning reports, unit rosters) etc, would contain info of transfers between units, etc.
I'm trying to recreate my grandfathers roll in WWII (i've requested the OMPF - lost in the fire), and I know he was part of the 3429th ORD MAM (which i found out was formerly Co. A of the 73d ORD BN). I do know that in may or june he was transferred to the 423d Inf. Reg. but he was discharged out of the 3429th.
His campaign credits don't match that listed of the 73d Ord Bn on their website. His were Northern France and Rhineland.
He also brought home a 75th Inf. Division patch as well.
I also have the station and movement history of the 3429th Ord MaM Co. received from MHI this week. I am going to try and scan it in and see if some people can help me glean the most of it that i can. I mean i understand parts of it, but it would be nice to have an 'expert' go over it with me.
Thanks a ton,
