12th Minesweeping Flotilla
Lisa is an American living in Somerset, England. When she was in the local hospital giving birth to her daughter almost 7 years ago, she became fascinated with the hospital itself and started asking questions.
She learned that it was built by the Americans during WWII and that it was the 67th General Hospital, staffed by a group from Maine. The original building is still standing and is being used to this day. The hospital is now called Musgrove Park Hospital.
Lisa would be grateful for any information at all as she has decided to write a book about the origins of this hospital.
If you have any information, please contact Lisa
Paul, from Arizona, has been trying, with limited success, to find information on his father's and an uncle's WWII outfits.
His father, Dan Mardian, was in the 97th General Services Regiment (US Army Corp of Engineers) and his uncle, Jim Evkhanian, was in the 166th AAA Battalion (US Army).
They were both from Pasadena, CA and both served in the Pacific Theatre from 1943-45 in New Guinea and the Philippine Islands.
Paul has had several "lines in the water" over the past year but with little or no success. His father and uncle are still living and would love to get information on the Regiments or hear from old commrades.
If you can help with any information, please contact Paul

B. Larquetou is looking for their father who was in the 162nd Fortress Infantry (France). It seems that he was captured on 20th June 1940 at Laneuveville, just before Nancy. He was imprisoned to start with in a front stalag, then taken towards the East possibly to Stalag IIIC.
Does anyone know if the 162nd were actually imprisoned in this Stalag?
