WW2 Records; 328 Field Artillery Battalion


///Sgt Condon Davis' name appears in the army files for the 328th Field Artillery Battalion's General Order No. 10.  He was issued the Good Conduct Medal, which was usually issued after 12 months of service.  This General Order was 2 or 3 pages long and included several names from various batteries within the 328FA.      NOTE; his Army Serial Number matches the enlistment records from Footnote.  This is a portion of the memo.///

HEADQUARTERS 328TH FIELD ARTILLERY BATTALION
                                                   APO 85, U.S. Army
                                                      10 July 1944
 GENERAL ORDERS NO. 10
 

2. Under the provision of AR-600-68 and for exemplary behavior, efficiency and fidelity, the following named enlisted men are awarded the Good Conduct Medal:

BATTERY "B"
                          Sgt. Condon E. Davis, 34283191

By order of Lt. Col. BURT0N:
 
                                          JAMES T. HENSON, SR.
                                          WOJG, USA,
                                          Personnel Adjutant.

Sgt Condon Davis served in the same unit as my Father in WW2: Battery "B", 328th Field Artillery Battalion, 85th Infantry Division. Dad has several photos with Sgt. Davis and mentions him several times in his writings. I noted that Sgt. Davis was killed in the war but that may not be the right person. I would like to contact the descendants of Condon Davis and share this information with them.

Pisa Italy

Pisa  - Pushing forward outside of Pisa, between Pisa and Florence.

    "The 328 Field Artillery were south of the Arno River and the Germans were north. We were firing 5 miles on a windy days.   Each night we would change positions along the east-west river, but they left their camouflage nets in position. The Germans thought more artillery had been moved up. Sgt Cole could see the Leaning Tower of Pisa from his observation post and could see the Germans using it for their O.P.  One day, Sgt Cole saw 2 camels grazing near the Leaning Tower. They reasoned the Germans brought them with them from North Africa.

    Dad could spot the railroad depot on the north side of town. One day he saw a railroad car with several people standing around it. The town was being bombed by Air Corps bombers. The next morning he saw that same railroad car lying upside down and on TOP of the railroad depot.

    Also, outside Pisa, they were digging a latrine and dug up some sugar, olive oil and very good wine. Davis got drunk on the wine and so did the guards."

(Portion of Notes taken during interview with Newton F. Cole.)

Condon E Davis b: March 26, 1916 in TN d: February 15, 1994 in TN I am granddaughter of Sgt Davis. My mother Mary Carolyn Davis Lindsey is his daughter. His son James Edwin Davis still lives in Decatur,TN. Pap Paw Davis died at 75 yrs old in nursing home after suffering a stroke

Glad we made contact. I called several Davis's in and around Decatur & middle Tenn with no luck. I thought the family may like to see my Dad's photos. I would also like to see a clearer view of the photo you posted. It appears that he is wearing the insignia of the 328 Field Artillery. I have seen only 1 or 2 photos of soldiers actually wearing this pin so that would be an unusual photo. I would like to add it to my website. Steve (Collierville, Tenn)

Great photos. I added annotations to your photos. The photo of him holding a rifle in front of a barracks was obviously taken at Camp Shelby, Miss. His Discharge Papers show his training as a Lineman. That agrees with notes from my Dad where he wrote down the names of the men in his section and their assigned duties.
