My father, Harry Solomon, was a sergeant in Troop B.

He passed away 1 November 2012. He was 96. Since he was one of the older soldiers, there are probably some surviving soldiers from the Squadron who knew him.

He was always ready to share his military history, specially the attack in Grand Roselle in which the highly respected Captain Cecil Cleary was killed close to him, and he was knocked unconscious. After coming to, Dad completed the mission. Captain Cleary got the Silver Star and my father got the Bronze Star.

In the Squadron Roster, he had updated addresses for:

J E Ellerbee Jr (Orangeburg, NY)

H Kalish (Tucson, AZ)

E Miller (Mt Vernon, NY)

H Taubin (Rockville, MD)

T J Boney (New York, NY)

E A Lukens (Arlington, VA)

F C Wolfe (Levittown, PA)

C H Steinegweg (Norwalk, CT)

N G Wangen (Holland, MI)

L C Britton (Fall River, MA)

I would appreciate hearing from any officers or enlisted men who knew him.

Hi Martin, There is a Roselle River, but I can not find a
Grand Roselle. (or Grande Roselle). Can you check if you
have the right name? Is it a region or a town?

I will look to see whether the other names are of living
veterans.

To be continued.

Martin, The key is to find the Petite Roselle
map on Google. This is right on the border of
France and Germany. Just across the border
in Germany is a place called GrossRoseln. In French, the name would be Grand Rosselle.

I have not had time to work on the names.

Hello, As a first step, look to the left side of this website. Click on BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES.
Scroll down to the UNIT HISTORY OF THE 43RD
TANK BATTALION. Go to Chapter 5 on Co. C.
I have not read it, but your Dad's name may be
in there. His name is on the roster at the end of
the chapter. His name is not on big roster
17,000 MEN. (See left side of the website).

Also here is the name and contact information for the Unit Representatives to the Hellcat News.

Connie Olson 660 216 4305, rcolson@nemr.net

Also see the left side of the screen on the website.
