Ford GPA n. 8946

Post by enrico » Thu Aug 09, 2007 12:54 pm

Hi,

I have the GPA n.8946 delivery 2/27/43. It was used by the 755th Tank Battalion in Italy. The driver was J.C.Perry (I am looking for him and/or his family but it isn't so easy.... somebody could help me please). The Battalion landed in Anzio and fighted in Cassino.
About J.C.Perry I think hi was from Lake Charles (Louisiana).
