Hi,
Does anybody recall Carl A. deLashmet. I'm trying to find out what unit, or any experiences involving Mr. deLashmet. I believe he was with the 12th Armored Div. I think he was in WW2 and may have also been A Military advisor in Texas. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
you can reach me at my email address:

Harry, He retired as a Lt. Colonel in 1963! I am not
sure he was in the 12th Armored. Since he was an
officer, probably, he would be listed in every
month of every After Action Report for his battalion.

I found nothing in the HCN Arcives.
Mike

his service record states: 11-01-1935 to 11-01-1943. Found one record of his being a CWO. ANOTHER HARD ONE TO TRACK

I am asking because I picked up one of his Army HBT shirts with "12 (Triangle w/square in the middle) D", in large letters on the back of the shirt. On the from over the left pocket is his WW2 "O" ASN.
I recently researched Mr. DeLashmet by acquiring his military service records. He was a Platoon Tank Commander with the 193rd Tank Battalion. He was assigned with 193rd TB "HQ Company" on Butaritari, Makin Atoll Nov. 20-23rd 1943, and Assigned to Company "D" on Okinawa, April to July 1945. I can assume that the "D on the HBT shirt, may mean Company "D"? If so, What does the 12 signify, and the meaning of the "black square" in the middle of the "Armor Triangle"? I have seen squares on WW2 soldiers helmets signifying they were with HQ Co.
Any thoughts? Ideas? Guesses/

Hi, I now think DeLashmet and the 193rd were part of the
12th Infantry Division. Look it up on Google. One or two
patches resemble the description you gave.

I do not believe there is any connection with the 12th
Armored Division

I think the patch you describe is for the 12th Infantry
during WW I, At the time it was called the Plymouth
Division. In WW2 it was called the Phillipine Division and
had a different patchl
