139th TC Hospital train maintenance

Help Julien if you can ...

Hi

I'm a french writer and I'm writing a new graphic novel. A part is about John Wojcik, a GI from my family who was mechanic in the military railway service. I need some information about his unity: 139th TC Hospital train maintenance. I only know John was in Germany, near Monchengladbach in July and august 1945 and worked on the hospital train number 46. Any information about this unity or this hospital train could be very useful for me.


Thanks ! J. Frey http://julienfrey.blogspot.com/
