Are there any really good resources online which put names to numbers for A/3rd Marine Tank on Iwo? I've got David Harper's Squadron title on Marine tank units on Iwo, and have been checking out film clips on Critical Past and have arrived at the following list for starters:

1 - don't have the whole name, but it starts with "ATAB..."
5 - AGONY
6 - ATLAE
7 - ANN
8 - APACHE
9 - ATEBALL
14 - ADDER
77 - AILEEN (was this the company commander's vehicle, or one from battalion command? It appears to be marked per A coy. and is shown landing along with other A coy. tanks)

While I've also found film footage of 4 and 13 (and possibly 12), I can't make out names for them.

Thanks in advance,

DG
