Searching for information on Sgt. George William 'Billy' Delany of St. Louis. Also would love to know what his duties might have been as a mine detector - I'm guessing he used something like a hand-held mine detector - but is that all he would have done?

Thank you. brchitwood@gmail.com

I'm just finishing up a great book on the 313 - written by the 313 - it can be downloaded free and has a roster in the back. Lots of great pictures and details. It won't let me add the link but you should be able to google Bangor Public Library WORLD WAR REGIMENTAL HISTORIES
History of the 313th Infantry in World War II

Looking for any information on a George William 'Billy' Delany of St. Louis Mo. He served with the 79th 318 Infantry and was killed on 19 Dec. 1944, age 20. Noticed some one above found a grave with that date on it. Reading the History of the 313 & it is great - Billy is listed on the roster - he was a Sgt - mine detection. No idea which company.

For the person interested in G company here is a great site and includes pictures. I tried to email but it got bounced. popjpeg{758,George William 'Billy' Delany}

My dad, Laurence Pliner,who is 94, was in the 79th Division, G company, 313th Regiment. He has started telling the stories in the past few years and we went through his footlocker recently. He still has his uniform and the jacket still fits! His dad was in the 79th Division during WWI and we have his uniform too! He has a small journal that he kept during part of his tour. Would love to hear from anyone that may have more info about G company or that may have pictures.

I found a book WW2 history of the 313th. I found my father's name in the book. His name was Edd Davis and was a Private in the 79th. He was wounded in July 1944 and in the hospital for months after. I tried to upload but I guess the file is to big. Email me if you can't find it and want a copy of it.

Hi all, I am a local historian rewriting the website entry for FOAM, Friends of Marbury and Anderton, Cheshire England. Marbury Hall was the camp occupied by most of the 313 Regiment and its artillery from April 1944 until early June 1944 when it moved south to embark for Normandy. If anyone has photographs, diaries or maps you'd like to share we would like to put the material into an account of the war years at Marbury to add to the English, Scottish and Polish material we are collecting from earlier military units on site. We want to honour those thousands of men who lived in our community and fought for our freedom.

My Uncle Solomon "Sol" Iskowitz served with the 79th Infantry Division, Medics attached to the 313th Infantry Regiment.He was in combat for eleven months and was awarded 5 Silver Campaign Stars; the Combat Medic Badge; a Bronze Star; and the French Normandy Medal. After spending 16 weeks in extensive training in the United States, Sol found himself on Utah Beach Landing in Normandy, France in 1944. As a Combat Medic on the front lines, he did not carry a weapon. Sol died in 2002 so that's all the information I have. I sure he came in contact with many of those wounded and those who had perished in battle. My father said years ago that "he was not the same person when he returned from the war."

My name is Jim Ringenberg. My father, Edward C. Ringenberg, was an officer with the 313th, Company M. Some of his closest friends were "Tex" Crozier and Chet Davis. There was a young soldier whose nickname was "Holtzy" who was shot in the chest and died in my father's arms begging him, "Don't let me die, don't let me die" but there was nothing my father could do but remember him the rest of his life. My father considered him like a little brother and could scarcely talk without tears about the young man who probably lied about his age to enlist. Does anyone have any information on "Holtzy"?

My father was in the A Company, 1st Battalion, 313 Infantry, 79th Division. He and my mother wrote a book called "The Kid from the 313th". My father passed away 3 months ago. My Dad didn't talk about the war but when I was an adult he did share stories of his buddies. It took my Mom 10 years to get him to tell her all the stories of the war and to be able to write it all down. My Dad's name is James E O'Neil but he went by the name Decker. He was not of age when he joined the Army. My Mom and Dad went to the 79th reunions every year so if you are interested I can get the information.

I'd be grateful for any personal information about S/Sgt Harold F. Norman (born 30 April 1924, Montgomery County, IN). I recently found a c.1943 photo of Norman, in uniform, in a local antique store. Norman served in the 313th IR (not sure which battalion or company), 79th ID ("Lorraine Cross Division"). Norman reportedly shipped over to Europe on 1 May 1944. I'm guessing he landed with the 79th ID on Utah Beach on/about D+8 (12 June 1944). S/Sgt Norman died (either MW or KIA) in the vicinity of Hagenau on 13 December 1944, aged 20. Norman's remains were probably interred in the vicinity of Hagenau and returned to the U.S. sometime after 1945 as I have located his grave in a Crawfordsville IN cemetery. Harold Norman married Madge McMurry on 16 January (or June?) 1943. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Hello, My name is Christian Stafford and this is my first time to this site. I am trying to do some research about my Grandpa,Augie Stafford's time in WWII. As I am seeing with many others, the men in the 313th did not like to talk about their experiences. My Grandpa served in the E company of the 313th and was wounded in the right arm on July 6, 1944 and again in the back sometime after that. We have recently discovered his Purple Heart(Which I just saw for the first time) and some pictures of my Grandpa with a few other soldiers in his unit and I was just informed by my father that Grandpa had wanted to get in contact with a man they called Pappy from Oregon. My Grandpa was a great, honest, hard-working man that loved his family, but never talked about the war. Upon unearthing some documents we found out that he was a scout and sniper.

Additional information about William Butler...

prior to being deployed overseas, he was stationed in Panama-he hated it there. He knew a way out of Panama was to train as a paratrooper...which he did. I don't think he ever got certified (?) as a paratrooper, but it was enough to get him shipped overseas. Much to his delight :-)

Also found almost 50 pictures of my grandfather's time overseas, many with names and/or dates on them. I will be going through these soon and will post anything of interest I find.

John Porter and Michelle Edinger, My father, Edwin Price, was the leader of the second platoon, Company I of the 313th. He was the fourth officer to lead that platoon druking the war. He also led the company for several weeks after the other officers were all killed, wounded or captured at Stundwiller in Alsace. I spoke with him today after reading your posts and he remembers Col. Porter very well and has a few stories... He also remembers Butler, but only vaguely. Another platoon leader from Company I, Harry Barbish, was a family friend until his death around twenty years ago. Dad has a copy of the 79th Div newsletter that includes an article (with photograph) about Col Porter. I can arrange to get you a copy if you don't already have it in your collection.

My Uncle Wilbur Lines was a machine-gunner while serving in Company H of the 314th Infantry Regiment. With this information is it possible to find out what battalion he was in? Have brief notes of his days in combat criss-crossing Europe but am seeking more information about his experience for our family. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In response to John Porter-
My grandfather was a member of 3rd Battalion 313th Infantry, Company I.

His name was William Clarence Butler from Camden, NJ.
He did many cartoons for The Dim View, The Battle Star, and Stars and Stripes. I have a few of the originals in my possession.

As I was looking through what I have, I saw your grandfather's name mentioned many times. I have a Memorial Services (card?) that my grandfather kept from June 19, 1945 in Czechsolovokia. Also, I have a clipping from a newspaper "The 313th Goes Touring". It shows what they call a "motor march" through the mountains of Germany into Czech. (No date on it)

I would love to know more about where he was during the war, if there are any pictures of him, or more of his cartoons floating around. Any information you can give me would be great.

Thanks, Michelle Edinger

I'm looking for a copy of "The Dual For France" which recounts the assault on Montgardon Ridge by the 313th Inf Rgt and the 315th Inf Rgt in driving rain from July 3 to July 8, 1944 when the ridge was secured. This action was accomplished by infantry alone due to rain and no tanks, arty or air support. My brother was killed in action on that ridge on July 6, 1944, a member of Co E, 313th Inf Rgt. I'm retired with 42 years Army service both uniform and civilian. I saw 3 Lorrain Cross patches on right shoulders during that time. I know the losses suffered during the war.
