Updated Research Results Subsection

I have finally gotten around to updating the History subsection I have titled Research Results. Since my last update, I have received several items of importance with regards to the Regiment's CBI history.

  1. I will be updating the Research subsection further with more technical data from an annotated map I received from the Burma campaign. As part of that donation, I also received a typewritten timetable of movement for the Regiment beginning with their departure from Fort Brown on 10 May 1944 to their deactivation on 1 July 1945. This has been uploaded as a PDF to the Research subsection. Thank you to Mr. Duffy for generously donating the map, timetable, and book to the Association. I will be taking these artifacts to the Texas Military Forces Museum at Camp Mabry in Austin, Texas for preservation. My big project will be to take information from the map and making a Google Earth KML file available showing the route with annotations. This project will take quite a bit of time so I don't have an ETA on its completion.
  2. I received a Chicago Tribune newspaper clipping that reports on the exploits of Sergeant Kim Hill, a member of the Regiment that served in the Regiment in Burma. A PDF of this clipping is available now. Thank you to his son for sending me a copy of this clipping.
  3. My final upload in this update was provided by the family of Sergeant Raymond W. A. Baehr. It is a PDF copy of a typewritten personal accounting of the Burma campaign. Information about Sergeant Baehr follows. It should be noted that 2 February 1945 was the date of the Battle of Knight's Hill. Sergeant Baehr actually served in Troop F, the troop that was commanded by Jack Knight.
