Large Lot of WW2 Letters 819th Engineers Aviation Battalion
This is a large lot of 27 WW2-era letters home - 26 letters from a member of the 819th Engineers Aviation Battalion to his sister in Florida, and 1 letter from a member of the 1201st Military Police Company - 373rd Fighter Group (9th AAF) to the same woman. These are nice multi-page letters. The ones in plastic holders are the ones I read when going through the stack several years back (the other ones I haven't gone through).
One nice letter dated May 2nd, 1945 reads in part "I am glad you received the package with the flag and medals. You said you would like to hear more about them well I told you I would get you a flag when I got to Germany so I did in fact just before Germany, Carl got that one for me as he was in that place longer than I was. I split up with him the things I got on my last trip. ... I am advance in my outfit, There is a package on the way with an officer coat, hats, and other junk including the iron cross. ... Just think Hitler was reported to have kicked the bucket last night and Mussolini got clipped last week. Hitler sure got sick in a hurry when the Russians reached Berlin. ..." Also, letters discuss points and having his name in the hat to go home, how nice it was of the Germans to leave such nice accommodations in France for them, etc,
