The Glasgow Times April 13 1944
Glasgow's own battery B, of the old 123rd cavalry, has lost its first member in the war. Confirmation of the death of Tech. 5 grade Sgt. James C. Berry, 24, by the War Department, was received by his mother, Mrs. Lola Berry, of Park City, Monday. The message stated that he died in a hospital at a beachhead March 1. A previous message to Mrs. Berry received March 29 stated that he had been seriously wounded at the Anzio beachhead February 29.
Young Berry left Glasgow with Battery B in 1941, and had been with it through the two years of strenuous and dangerous service it had overseas. He participated in the invasion of Africa, of Sicily and of Italy. The sadness of the family is particularly shared by all the families who have loved ones in Battery B, for it had been their hope and prayer that this fine group would be spared. Besides his mother Sgt. Berry is survived by a brother, Donald F. Berry, in the navy, and a sister, Mrs. Allison Shipley, Park City.
