I am new here and am trying to do research on my grandfathers unit, the 191st Combat Engineers, Light Pontoon Company. I have found that this company was originally part of the 112th Engineer Battalion (Cleveland Greys) but they were reorganized in 1942 and the 2nd Battalion was designated as the 191st Combat Engineers, Light Pontoon Company. As such I have also been told by Army historians that the unit was/is listed as "unassigned, unattached" - essentially they could go anywhere and be assigned to any other unit needing logistic support (bridges) as well as fighting strength. On gentleman at the Army Center of Military History told me that in today's terms they would be considered 'special forces'. But this is all I have been able to find - somewhat clinical and lacking in any detail. I was told that unless there was someone with a special interest in recording the company's history that the, 'dates and places' history is about as good as it will get. I am hoping that I can find someone who had a relative who served in this unit and potentially kept a diary or some type of personal history that might help fill in the gaps of my Grandfather's company history. I do have some photos spanning from Calcutta to Kunming and Shenghi (wars end) and will see about posting them if anyone is interested. Respectfully, Tom P.
