Will needs help from 99th years ago

Will seeks help from 99th

     Will Cavanagh of England, the well known tour guide of the Ardennes battleground in Belgium, needs a bit of assistance from 99th veterans.

     Will wrote the official 99th history, an earlier book about the twin villages, and is the author of a highly successful guide book of the Ardennes campaign.

     Now, he's working on a revised edition of his Krinkelt/Rocherath book and needs a bit of help.

     He is seeking photographs of Sgt. Elmer P. Klug of L/394 and T/Sgt Savino Travalini. They were instrumental in defending Buchholz Station in December 1944. Will would like photos of each man, to be used with the story he has written for his new revised book.

     The photos may be shared with Will by writing: Will Cavanagh, 11 Crichton Ave., Chester le Street, Co. Durham, DH3 3ND, England. You may call him at
