Change of Duty (Roscoe)

Change of Duty orders, dated February 26, 1944

Change of Duty orders, dated February 26, 1944

Roscoe received his orders to return to the United States on February 26, 1944. The journey would take a few weeks. Before he left Wellington, he presumably sent a cable home to Indiana as he makes reference to one in a v-mail written on February 27th. The cable has not currently been located, if it still exists. The first stop on the way home was to the north, in Auckland, New Zealand.

      I have several carbon copies of this letter. Roscoe was pretty meticulous about keeping all his military documents. Which of course was a windfall for me as I have put his timeline together over the years!
