    Mr Pearson served in the US Army, with the rank of Technician 4th Grade!
    I have not yet been able to confirm whether the 25th Medical Battalion was of mixed race or segregated...

    I know they aren't great but these were the best I could get, zooming in any closer to the ASN only made the numbers more difficult to deciper

    Seriously doubting T-4 Pearson now!
    Plus, I can find nothing to suggest that the 25th was one of the tiny number of divisions involved in the experimental desegregation that took place from late 1944 (seemingly in the ETO only).

    Those numbers look completely different... I don’t think we can make a decent call without ironing the area perfectly flat first. Perhaps weighting down under a sheet of glass?
    Sorry CH, I really thought we were heading in the right direction there... I’d still like to account for that ‘N’ though.
