13th Major Port roster, part 1

Chapters 11 to 14 of my book deal with WWII Antwerp. In overall command of the American supply operations in this city was the 13th Major Port. The 13th has also been managing the port operations back in England during the build up to Normandy. John Partridge, a veteran officer of the 13th, supplied me with a 1946 unit roster. I'm including the names in this post to help those researching their family history. If you see your dad or grandfather in the list feel free to get in touch. Also, be sure to see my other 13th Port history articles.
