Hello, my 92 year old Uncle, Jack Saretsky was in the 833rd during WWII. I am trying to find as much information as possible to provide to him. He is as sharp as a tack! Any books, photos, news prints, insignia's, Logos, would be greatly appreciated.

Uncle Jack lives in St. Petersberg Florida and is a member of the VFW. I am really hoping to provide Uncle Jack with something special!

I am writing to let people know that Sheldon "Bun" O Chatterton passed away at age 87.

According to what he has told me throughout his life, he was a member of the 833rd AV. ENG. BTN, or at least he was for a while. He helped with the construction of an airfield in Southern England where he was a cook. He was a TEC 4, but was reduced in rank and transferred so he would not kill the officer who busted him.

The story goes that he was assigned to take lunch to this officer. Unfortunately, for dad, he did not pack the lunch. Upon arrival at where the officer awaited his lunch, it was discovered that the meat ration had not been packed. The officer went into a rage and told my dad that he was going to be busted for not bringing the meat. My dad, a farm boy from Ellisville, IL, decided that if he was going to get busted for something that was not his fault, he might as well get busted for something that was his fault. Dad proceeded to punch the officer in the face.

Dad was subsequently busted and was transferred out of the unit. I have been told that he ended up driving trucks for the rest of WWII. He ended up marrying an English girl from Brantham, Suffolk, England. Mother passed away 6 months before dad.

Any information you can come up with would be greatly appreciated.

Yours in service,
Ray O. Chatterton, US Coast Guard, Retired
