    Nathan Clerc Newbie

      Hello,

      I am in search of information concerning the 216th engineer battalion during the second world war and notably during the campaign in Europe

       

      Would somebody be aware of archives, registers or other consultable resources in order to be able to find information on this battalion and on the persons having served in this battalion.

       

      I thank you in advance
