BATTERY "C" ROSTER 76TH FIELD ARTILLERY REGIMENT (HORSE-DRAWN), CAMP CLAYTON 1940

“C” Battery Roster of the 76th Field Artillery Regiment and Thanksgiving Menu at Camp Clayton in 1940. “C” Battery was still encamped in tents at this time and before it was officially called Fort Ord. We are getting our first look at a roster of the 76th Field Artillery Regiment before they were broken down into the 74th, 75th, and 76th Field Artillery Battalions. This is a good example of the make-up of a field artillery battery.

The 76th was transferred from the Third Division to the G.H.Q. artillery and then to the 7th Division at Fort Ord. In 1940 for the first time in 18 years the 76th Field Artillery Regiment was again assembled as a combined fighting unit. During the month of May in 1940 the First Battalion, located at Fort Warren, Wyoming was moved to Camp Clayton to join the 76th as the Third Battalion. The youngest organization was Battery “F” which joined the 76th at Camp Clayton in July of 1940 after being ordered to Camp Clayton (Fort Ord) from Fort Hoyle, Maryland. The 76th composed of units from different sections, but of one spirit, stands, again under their regimental standard, “ready to fight”. The 76th Field Artillery Regiment was first to be attached to the 7th Division and the first to be camped in tents at Camp Clayton that would soon be called Fort Ord.

The 76th Field Artillery acquired 120 trained and experienced men when the entire Battery “F”, 6th Field Artillery, Fort Hoyle, MD., was transferred to Fort Ord. It maintained it’s original identity as Battery “F” when it became a part of the 76th Field Artillery. It is commanded by 1st Lt. R.R. Ganns.

“C” Battery (Of the original First Battalion) transferred to Camp Clayton (Fort Ord) in May of 1940.
