Aloysius j pollard
« on: Sunday 07 November 21 20:11 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I am looking for Aloysius J Pollard born 1913 in Bristol, Massachusetts. I know he served in world war 2 and enlisted in 1942. I have seen his memorial on fold3. He is my 1st cousin 3x removed and he passed away in 1985.

I am having trouble finding anything more on him like where he was stationed and if he saw any action etc. Any help would be great

Thanks

Blair
