Season Greetings to all,

 

It has been a long time since I have posted let alone make a new purchase but of the later I recently did and I am now hoping to get some assistance from the Forum. The following is a "Short Snorter" that I just purchased and have yet received but I did some research prior to the purchase and some subsequent due to a possible D-Day connection.

 

So far I have been able to identify two of the service men who both served onboard LCI(L)'s during the D- Day invasion. Those two are Paul F Bunumas (LCIL-540 and Flotilla -12) and Robert D Therrel (LCIL-413).

Both of whom are found on the reverse of said snorter. This leads me to my "help" request as I would love help on identifying the others. There are those that are easy to ready but have yet to properly identify. Such as Hood, Winkler, Yates, Stroup, and Hughes.

 

Any and all help is always appreciated

It is pretty much the whole crew off the June 1944 Muster Roll for LCI(L)-413 plus an Ensign (Stroup).

I saw it and passed on it. One of these days I need to thin out my short snorter collection.
