198th Coastal Artillery, Bethany Beach DE
198th Coastal Artillery, Bethany Beach Delaware
A nice old postcard postmarked on August 6, 1932 and mailed to Miss Marie Rosengren in Hartly Delaware. The card was sent by Pvt. Clarence Courtney, Battery G of the 198th (the Kent County Battery). This could be the Clarence C. Courtney buried in Camden Delaware along with his wife, L. Virginia Courtney. The 198th was commanded by Col. George Schulz of Hartly during this time period.
Known later as the 945th in Kent County, and redesignated the 193d Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion.
