18th C.B. Tarawa bring backs

Recommended Posts

Very cool. Each Marine Division in WWII had an engineering regiment; 2nd=18th Marines, 1st=17th Marines, 4th=20th Marines, etc. The third battalion of each of these regiments was in fact a Seabee NCB. They wore USN and USMC insignia, uniforms and often interchanged them. I have a scrapbook from Seabee from 3/18th with many photos of Tarawa in it that were taken personally by the Seabee. Many of these photos also show a wide range of eclectic insignia used from both service. Thanks for posting. This unit is a particular interest of mine within my Tarawa interest.





Could you please scan any of the 18th Seabee photos? I would love to see them....
