Hello,
Going through the trunks I found this map, some pictures and the letter kind of cracked me about how fast Germans ran.. Enjoy.. Jeff

    I have a complaint. They were all so interesting, I didn't know which one to enlarge first!

    Your letter sounds like the author was with the 77th Division, as they employed trucks to keep up with the retreating Germans after they routed them from St. Juvin, Grand Pr, and Champignuelle. The truck pursuit began around Buzancy and continued to the outskirts of Metz. My great uncle was with Co. I of the 305th until he was killed. Would love to know about the author.

    NutznBolts- Sorry about the long delay in getting back to you. The man who wrote the letter was Lucien Forrest McConihe, He was assigned to engineering jobs with a truck. Lucien left a huge amount of artifacts from WWI. His Brother Paul McConihe Actually was a tanker with the loaned Out British MK IV tanks the Americans had. After the war, Paul served in Hawaii with those old MK IV till the Americans developed their own. Lucien was a engineer and had a Cinnabar Mine ( Mercury the bad stuff ) in Washington state.
