I recognize the 1st five places; Aquitania, Gourock, Scotland; Adderbury, England; Southampton, England; Rouen, France. Then St. Vith, Belgium, Vicinity.

Then on 12/25/44, Harre, Belgium; 3/16/45 St. Quentin, France and 4/7/45 Camp Coetqeichon near Rennes, France.

The Soldier who had this map must have been an Officer because only Officers were at the gym in Spa, Belgium on 1/5/45 to have a bath. Enlisted men did not go there to have a bath.

I believe the Soldier who possessed this list was an Officer who was assigned to the 2nd Battalion of the 424th Regiment.
