Philip joined the 508th band on August
9, 1943 when an unnumbered memo attached him to the group. The
memo failed to indicated where he had come from.
His stay was short, however, as her was transferred along
with a few other band members to the 541st PIR. The 541st was also
at Camp Mackall at the time so the transfer may have involved a short
walk through the piney woods to get to the other regiment's camp.
