My father, Robert P Armstrong, was with the 831st Engineering (Aviation) Battalion as they constructed the airfield at Willingale, Essex, England from August 1942 until February 29, 1944, when he was injured in a fall from a hangar his squad was helping construct at another airfield. His back and ankle were broken and he was taken to hospital in Manchester before being shipped back to the states. He never rejoined the unit and never heard what became of them. Dad is still living but his memory is not as sharp as it once was and he thinks he was in Company B. I would appreciate any information about the the 831st and Company B of that unit.

Hi Paul. Unfortunately the 831st EAB didn't publish a unit history at the end of the war so the best we have to go on are the monthly reports. I am now working to get those all posted on line. When I do, I'll post a message here.

In the meantime, I've added your father to the unit roster (http://ixengineercommand.com/listmen.php?unit=19#A) and would be happy to create a page for your father if you'd send me what you'd like to include. You can review so of the other pages for examples.
