112th Infantry Regiment at Llanybydder

Hi all!

Just to let you know I’m keeping busy on these lovely warm evenings reading up on the arrival and stay of the 28th Infantry Division (ID) from October 1943 to April 1944. The 28th ID was originally the Pennsylvania National Guard, many of the soldiers from that area were of Welsh descent and were welcomed to Wales when they arrived to train for the D-Day landings.

The 28th ID docked at Cardiff in 1943 bringing almost 14,000 American soldiers to Wales, they were spread out across the Welsh countryside and began training and preparing for the retaking of France.
