Sgt. Rex Theobald, Headquarters Battery 1960


Hi Bill:


I arrived in the Canal Zone in early 1960. Was at HQ battery FT Clayton for a short time then was transfered to Atlantic Radar for the rest of my 3 year tour. Atlantic radar was part of B battery, it also had an arcat section for target practice for the 40's 50's and quad 50's.. The  twin 40's were at A and B batteries and Hawks at C and D when I got there.  But that was almost 50 years ago and memory gets weak.
