Looking for details of the crew of the tank destroyed on Dar Awan Hill. I believe it might be from 1st Pltn B. Coy 775th Tank Bn.

I am looking for details of the tank crew of the M4 destroyed at Dar Awan Hill, near Malico. I believe that it might've been from a platoon commanded by Lt Beltz, B.Coy 775th Tank Battalion. It is the wish of the owners of the land to display the names of the crew. Also any information on the battle would be appreciate.

Anyone who has information regarding Dar Awan Hill. We are planning to open it for tourist. We already restored the existing fox holes but we lack historical information. Hoping for a response. Thank you
