PFC Edward Coleman was in the 315th Infantry Regiment of the 79th and was killed on the 30th of June 1944 during the fierce fighting for the port of Cherbourg. I have tried to get his full service record but sadly it was destroyed in the fire. Golden Arrow research are in the process of trying to get me his IDPF.
Edward Coleman is buried in the American Military cemetery in Normandy and i pay my respects to him everytime I am in Normandy.
His helmet is named in the shell and in the liner.
