**PVT James F. Green was known as "Picaddilly Willy": 'Piccadilly Willy' Reclaims Place in History

1LT James Kenneth Davis, Assistant S-4, REGT, was away procuring medical, ordinance, and quartermaster items. This took so long that he made it back just in time to scramble onto the plane carrying the REGT Communications section into Normandy.

According to Don Coil [G Co, 3rd BN, 506th PIR, Sep 42-Feb 43; SV Co (Rigger), Feb 43-Nov 45], COL Sink would not authorize Service Company Riggers to jump on D-Day because he could not risk losing in combat any of the men whose parachute-packing skills would be needed if the 506th PIR made another combat jump. However, 13 of the Riggers sneaked onto the planes and made the D-Day jump anyway.

Thanks to Deborah Forrester, daughter of Marshall C. Oliver (Medic, B/A Co, 1st BN; E Co, 2nd BN, 506th PIR, 1942-1945)
for sending in the REGT HQ Roster.
