Since the Field Artillery crews were issued Springfields Did they still need to carry bayonet & scabbard in the field? As I would see the bayonet more for the infantryman's basic attack weapon. One of our newest member is portraying a PS field artilleryman.

Interested to locate material regarding the 41st Field Artillery, 41st Division. Sgt. Horst M. Fischer was an immigrant from Germany and drafted into the 41st. He was killed in action by Japanese aircraft. Since he was drafted, and not a POW, there are no records in the Archives. There is no listing at the Manila Cemetery. Appreciate any information regarding this veteran.
