    Battle of Arracourt mobile/field hospital


      I'm doing some research on mobile hospitals/field hospitals that would have been tending to the wounded of the Third Army during the Battle of Arracourt September 18-29, 1944. Any information would be helpful!

          Dear Ms. Newton,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office (Record Group 407) and located the journal of the 4th Armored Division Medical officer that provides the day-to-day movements of casualties and the 46th Armored Medical Battalion for September 1944 as well as the entire war. The 46th Armored Medical Battalion was also part of the 4th Armored Division.  The 4th AD was part of the Third Army.


          We also searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled Unit Annual Reports, 1940-1949 in the Records of the Office of the Surgeon General (Army) (Record Group 112) that includes a battalion history of the 46th Armored Medical Battalion that includes September 1944.


          For access to and/or copies of the journal and history, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.


          Additional information regarding the action is described in a report Arracourt -- September 1944 (ADB067783).


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
