Photos from Sgt Knott, 68th Tank Bn.
This page features some photos from the late Sgt James "Ed" Knott of the 68th Tank Bn. These photos were generously shared by Dutch Bailey, whose mother married Ed after Dutch's own Dad died after the war.
According to Dutch, Ed compiled quite a few photos and keepsakes during his time with the Super Sixth. In contrast, his own father (who also served with the US Army in Europe) never talked about his service. Dutch is hoping to pursue that line of research in the future.
In the meantime, we appreciate the ability to share Sgt. Knott's photos on this site. Also note the last link at the bottom of the page, which opens a PDF of a 68th Tank Bn post-war association newsletter.
