Picked up this box full of paper work,manuals,photos, and maps locally belonging to a Marine officer by the name of C.W. Shisler. Took photos of a few of the things. Take me a day or two to go through it all page by page.

I got these documents at a storage unit auction. I had to pay $18.00 which I thought was high compared to what everything else was bringing. The KIA files have the names and how they were killed. By sniper and so forth.

Everything I see so far has to do with the Sixth Marine Div. and officer C.W. Shisler from the kiska task force which I think was related to Amphibian Training Force 9 and okinawa and China. Even a little on the 87th mountain regiment which I think was part of the FSSF and part of the kiska task force correct me if I'm wrong.

The 87th Mountain Regiment was part of Amphibious Task Force 9 on Kiska not the FSSF. They would later become part of the of the 10th Mountain Division.

More than likely if you contact the National Marine Museum and let them know what you have they will probably pay for you to have exact copies of those made for them. Seriously, a copy of what you have needs to be in the Archives of the Marine Corps.

 

 

So just curious, anything else neat come out of that storage locker?

They were pulling stuff out of the locker as they were selling and when they pulled this box out the auctioneer said he had a box of books and papers and held up a field manual which I can spot a mile away. So I took a shot! There was mostly some used furniture, boxs of glassware, electronic equipment and boxs of old american rifleman magazines.
