The map below shows where the MLR was on 27 July 1953. The 40th Inf Div sector was the Division symbol 4th from the right. Or directly north of the G in EIGHT ARMY.
I am starting to receive a lot of photos to put on this site. Every photo that I
receive I put on the page that the individual was
assigned to. These are mostly photos of individuals.
Other photos that may share a common interest with
the Division in general I copied and put on the 40th
Div. Photo page. I will publish each and every photo
that I receive. The site changes just about everyday.
If anyone reading this is a former member of the 40th Inf Div and have some photos that they would like to see on this site, please
and I would be more than glad to publish them on the site.
To go to the 40th Inf Div Photo Gallery please
SEARCHING FOR INFORMATION OF FORMER MEMBERS OF THE 40th INF DIV Sometimes I receive a photo from a relative asking for information on their relatives that are now deceased. The only thing they know is that he was in the 40th Div or one of the line Regiments. I made a page just for this purpose. Please
check the page and see if you know one of them. The
page can be accessed
