I would like to know if any information or pictures exist of my grandfather, Andrew Townsend. My grandfather passed away some time ago and I have very fond childhood memories of the stories he told me about the 44th.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Jerremy Townsend

Hello Jeremy, The Unit Representative to
the Hellcat News may be able to put you in
touch with a veteran of the 44th. Please
contact Geoff Lackey:

lackeys@charter.net

Also, look to the left for the 2713 division
photos. Click on the 44th. Also click on
Oral History Videos. Click on Battalion.
This sorts the battalions. There are 4 or 5
44th men giving interviews.

See also Photo Album for pictures in training.

There are short news films and stories about
the liberation of Santo Tomas prison camp in
Manilla on the web.
