National Archives Research
« on: June 06, 2015, 12:55:43 PM »
Hi,

Does anyone know someone in the Washington, DC / Baltimore, MD corridor that would be willing/able to go to the National Archives in College Park, MD to scan some documents?  I know where the document is (good finding aid). 

For example, there is a manual for the waterproof binoculars that are used as part of the Target Bearing Transmitters, and on the Five Inch 20 cal wet mount gun.  I have the OP number, NARA locator, etc.

Might have someone to help, if you still need it...
