WWII's 16th Photo Tech: A Project. By Theresa Everline.

National Archives: No 16th PTU Records. Nothin’.

Filed under: The squadron — Theresa Everline @ 11:11 am

Yesterday I received an email response to an inquiry I made to the National Archives and Records Administration. I asked if they had anything on the 16th Photo Tech Unit and noted that the unit was attached to the 67th Tactical Recon Group. This is what they said:

“We have searched our available finding aids for the records of the 16th Photographic Technical Unit without success. There are some reports from the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Group among our Records of the Army Air Forces (Record Group 18), WW II Mission Reports. Attached is a folder list.”

The document they attached lists 15 folders pertaining to the 67th Tactical Recon Group, most of them monthly “Operations Reports” for the period between June 1944 and May 1945. There are also two folders of “Field Orders.” I can see the records if I go to their research room in College Park, Md.

Looks like it’s road trip time!
