711th Clarence E. Stone

Pieter in Holland recently wrote ...

Here are pictures of the helmet liner of Clarence E. Stone and his Honorable Discharge.Stone had his training with the 1st Engineer Training Battalion in 1942. He can be seen on the yard long photo, GI # 164.

The liner is multiple marked with Stone's laundry mark S 4573. Also on the front above the eyelet Cpl chevrons were scratched .Between the eyelet and rivet Stone was scratched. Both markings are difficult to see because they were painted over.
He got his training with the Tank Destroyers and was assigned to the 397th MP Bn in Europe.
I am a collector of WW2 US items and helmets (I published a book on the M-1 helmet of WW2) In my collection I have a liner & documents of a GI who served with the 711th Railway Operating Bn.

Regards,Pieter

He also sent the discharge papers and I research a little and found this obit for Stone.
