Butler, Joseph J.
In 2014 Jeremy Severn purchased Joseph J. Bulter's helmet.
The helmet and liner clearly show a bullet hole on the front.

I a letter dated september 27, 1949 John Margreiter, a member of 23 AIB/C 2nd platoon, writes a letter to Dutchman Mr. Van Daal.                    
In this letter he writes of the  23AIB/C men being under fire of a sniper a forest near Overloon.
Is this the moment Joseph Butler got hit?


Many thanks to Jeremy Severn for providing the helmet pictures.
