I am currently looking for information about my grandfather Edward Eugene Cartwright.
I know that he was in the 12th Division, 23rd Battalion, Company B.

I would like to know where he fought?
If anyone may have known him?

I have a flag that he brought back with him and I would like to know where it could have came from and the history of it, but most of all I would really like to know more about my grandpa and what he had done.

Thank you in advance,
April D. Cartwright

Dear April, I heard from Ken that your
flag has a Swastika and an Eagle. I looked
up on BING:

Swastika and Eagle Flag

This provided some information. You might
search the several websites to see if you
get a specific military unit, or most probably,
this was a Nazi Party flag (that is a pure
guess).

Also, for information about Eugene Cartwright, you might contact the Unit
Representative to the Hellcat News:

April, One more thing: Go to the left column
and click on BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES.
Scroll down and click on HISTORY OF THE 23d
TANK BATTALION. You might find information
there about Mr. Cartwright.

Yours truly, Mike
