    I've seen mention of an "1100 Engineers" unit that was in the ETO and been doing some research to determine whether or not this refers to an 1100th Engineer Combat Group in the ETO during WWII but have not found any such units numbered lower than around 1103rd.

    Does anyone know if there was an actual 1100th Engineer Combat Group?

    Was the 1100 just a series or designator for this particular type combat engineer unit?

    Was there some other US Army engineer unit numbered "1100?"

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Thank you, Dave

    Have you inquired at the Center of Military History, the Army's historical site? If "1100" was a temporary or special function unit that might be your only chance.

    No 1100 anything for engineers according to Stanton. ETO redeployment OOB shows Engineer Combat Groups numbered 1101-1186. Only four other groups outside this bunch in the 1100s.

    Stanton, the best reference! I used to waste time in the library perusing that one instead of studying. Wish I had a copy . . . . Thank you!

    The only "1100" Engineer unit I find is an Engineer Utility Detachment, assigned to the ETOUSA 1 June 1944, operating at USAAF Station 481 at Bottesford, Leicestershire.

    The Air Force Historical site may have information in that case.
