I do have some photos from Amberg, Il send them out as soon as I scan them Into the computer, Il try that tonight, When I was In L Troop I had to dress up In a Sceck uniform for a group of French officers on an OP On the Check border at Marktreadwitzs,, I was In the 4th platoon In I troop, I went home In April of 65,,The first sergeant was Sgt carter at the time, I don't know If you remember Joe Roman, He got his head caught In the turret gear nearly lost his head, we went on leave to Italy together, That was a blast, got arrested In Rome, Joe climbed up on a statue of a gladiator, we were shitfaced, But they let us go, we stayed with my relatives In Como for awhile, My cousin had a tour boat on the lake and I was working on the boat for a few days,,, I would talk to the sweet American school teachers on vacation In broken English hiding my Boston Accent,, then after bedding them I would say, Oh by the way, when you get back to Boston look up my brother Vinnie, heheheheheh, they would get bullshit,,
The Tartan is Clan Morgan. The Book of Deer suggests that the Morgans lived in Aberdeenshire. At one time they were classed as a Sept of MacKay. The name Morgan, meaning 'sea-born' or 'bright', may be Celtic.
Sgt Dixon - I use the formal address because I was just a peon when I knew you - second(?)(my memory isn't the best either) platoon mortar squad. Maybe you will recall that I was the guy who purchased a J C Higgins 9 shot .22 revolver from you just before you rotated out in '61. I got the required shipping permit and still have that pistol. I don't have any rosters, but do have some pics. However, I have been doing some remodeling, and they are in storage (somewhere). I will find them but maybe not before next year. If Hof was the place with the castle, then yes, I was there - I have some pics from there too. And yes, I remember the company commander - seemed like a good officer - 4 star! wow.
