  • Ross Carter's DEVILS IN BAGGY PANTS

    As I stated in a previous posting, I'm one of those people who find the identifying of Carter's buddies to whom he gave false names to be a very interesting project. As I am membership chairman of the Col. Reuben Tucker (C.O., 504 PIR, WW2 ) Chapter, 82nd. Abn. Div. Assn., I have been able to talk to some of the remaining members of our chapter -- and a few of their relatives -- who were in Carter's unit in WW2. For various reasons, such as age, this is sometimes not as helpful as one might suppose. Nevertheless, I've had some good results. I have info and photos re.some
    of Carter's " C " Co. buddies, some of which other people likely have as well. Research is important; some time ago, I identified The Master Termite as John J. Parsons by comparing Carter's account of his date of death,
    (25 Dec.,1943) to the dates on the 504 PIR casualty lists. This type of comparison is also helpful re. some of Carter's other buddies but, in most cases, is not quite as definite. Also, thanks to a kind relative, I now have photos of The Master Termite which I'm ( hopefully ) going to attach to this posting.

    I would like to hear from anyone who has information, photos (especially with names; I have photos but most have no names ) of Carter's " C " Co., 504 PIR buddies who are mentioned in his book.

    So, here's John J. Parsons," The Master Termite ".
