Update 20 March 2010

March 20, 2010

I have not had a lot of time over the past couple of weeks to work on the project.  Most of what I accomplished was through Ancestry.com Immigration records.  I have over half of the volunteers return information now.  This has allowed me to add quite a bit of additional information.

I also added a link  to Joseph Zameres website and a photograph of POWs returning to the US that appeared in LIFE Magazine.  There are seven volunteers who should be in the photograph.  Would love to have assistance in identifying the men.

POWs exchanged on October 8, 1938 retuning to America aboard the Queen Mary.   The ship docked in New York on October 18, 1938.   Standing left to right Louis Noah Ornitz,  Norman Edward Dorland, Edgar Lawrence Acken, and Morris Conway.  Front row in bandage is Charles Barr, far right is Samuel Romer.  The other seven photographed are unidentified but should be:   Doneg Barberain, Carl Gustave Belau, Leopold Berman, Roger Lancaster Braley, Richard B. de Witt Brown, Van Rensalaer Chase, Jr.,  & Frederick Stix.  Insert is Ring Larder Jr. Photo from LIFE Magazine.


Update 2 March 2010

March 3, 2010

I added the names of the fifteen volunteers who arrived on the Ile de France on May 10, 1939[under returning volunteers/identification of photographs].  Twelve appear in a Corbis photograph and if anyone can assist with putting a name with a face I would appreciate the help.
