13th Major Port roster, part 3

Three chapters 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 had also been managing port operations in England during the build up to Normandy. To help those researching their family history I'm posting names from a 1946 unit roster here and in two other posts. 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.

I am guessing that this English guy was not an official member of the 13th Port, but was maybe a liason that worked with the Americans.
