About this newspaper羚nt>
     The newspaper was written by David Silvette and John Cornacchio. John drew all the cover cartoon.
It began as a publication of Company B, called 襠Bee Stinger좲>      On June 4, 1945, it became a newspaper of the entire Battalion, titled 衩ns and Pains༢r> and includes sections on each Company:

          "Raising Cain In Able CompanyⲾ           襠Bee StingerⲾ           ȯrse On CharlieⲾ           ᩴch and EssⲾ
I was completely unaware of the existence of this newspaper until one day while searching the internet for information related to the 327th Engineers. I discovered that the Library of Virginia held reprints of the newspaper in their archives. Wow! I consider it an invaluable resource that should be readily available to anyone with an interest in the 327th Engineer Combat Battalion, so I purchased photocopies of the collection - 65 pages.

I wish to emphasize that the newspaper was typed on an old fashioned typewriter of the era. Some sections are faint or faded. Others are very dark. I have typed the index of names as they were spelled in the newspaper, so please realize that names will be sometimes misspelled.
