    Hi everybody.
    I had asked for two publications in the old forum. Since this threat seemes to have vanished, I would like to ask again. I am searching for a copy of Sparky Bohnstedts essential book and the pictorial story of the 460th.
    I would be happy with a pdf copy of the first one as well.

    Someone had asked for a copy of the 460th "yearbook" which is the pictorial history in that format. I finally got it scanned in pdf format when the site was taken into revamp. The pdf is huge.

    The Bangor Maine Public Library has scanned a number of unit histories from all service branches which are available for download as PDF files. They really did an excellent job, there must be a hundred or more. Don't know if they have what you are looking for but it's worth a few minutes to scan their collection.

    Thank you, Lucky Partners. the one I am looking for is no available, but i found two others I am interested in.
    Mike, I think we both communicated in the old forum. I am so grateful you scanned it - how big is it?

    It looks like the Pictorial highlights of the 460th. The book cover is similar.
    I am a little bit puzzled because I can see my image. it takes a little time but its there.

    Not only the cover of the book is different but the content as well.
