  1. Hi guys, I'm looking for photos of an Autocar U-7144T closed cab in the E.T.O. for a friend. He's restoring his autocar and want to use markings from a unit that used a closed cab and doesn't want to make something up. So hopefully you can help me and my friend with this.
  2. Hi guys, A buddy of mine has a question regarding the following: Hi guys... I can’t seem to find the answer, so if anyone here knows.. I know NBB had several jeeps in their battalion. Question is, how were they marked? USN, NAVY, NBB, something else? I’ve looked through pictures but don’t see any markings. Is there someone who can help us with this. My buddy would like to do something different with the markings for his Jeep instead of the too many 506/E airborne jeeps that will be driving in Normandy this June. Hopefully someone can help us out. With kind regards, Dirk v

  12. Pete, I always make some pictures of the area that I visit, so that would not be a problem. Thank you, I'll take a look at the Hathitrust internetsite. Dirk
  13. Thank you Pete for sharing the link. The book "The Society of the First Division, Historry of the First Division During the World War' is easily to order in the Netherlands. The other books are a bit more difficult. My buddy Max Poorthuis, found also on the internet the book 'Story of the Sixteenth Infantry in France' online. In weekend of 18 December my brother and a couple of friends are going to make a three day visit to the Meuse-Argonne area.
  14. Pete, I'll definitely let you know how I liked the book. Thank you for sharing the titles of the books. Hopefully I can order them in the Netherlands. Dirk van den Bol
  15. Thank you for the site of the B&B. This can be a option for our stay.
  16. Teufelhund, thank you for sharing the information. I will take it into my schedule. I visited the museum at Romagne-sous-Montfoucon once, that has been 10 years back. The owner is a passionate guy, we did a small tour in the surrounding woods with him and he knows al lot about the area. I definitely want to visit his museum, the other museum I did not know, so can visit that as well. Groeten uit Son en Breugel.
  17. Thank you Pete, I bought your book last weekend. Now waiting till it arives. Yes I'm interested in the unit history, because I have a main interest in the 1st Infantry Division during WW2, but last week I went to the battlefield area around Romagne-sous-montfaucon and to the American cemetry for one day. There I saw that a lot of men from the 1st Infantry Division are burried there. During the christmas holiday I'm planning to go back and visit it for a couple of more days. That's the reason why I want to know a bit more about their part during WW1. Dirk

  21. Hello all, Are there any good books about the part of the 1st Infantry Division during the WW1? I only found the book 'Days of perfect hell' of Peter L. Belmonte and it goes about the 26st Infantry regiment.
  22. Thank you for sharing the pictures. We have the Ward la France M1A1 wrecker in our collection and it is a beautiful truck to see.
  23. I have been searching for a while for Field Manuals about the recovery of vehicles. This because we have ww2 US army recovery vehicles and I can't find a Field Manual about the recovery in the field. Maybe someone can help me with this.
