EDDY HOWARD ORCHESTRA Searching for information on a member

Greetings all! I'm searching for any information about Hal Williams, who played guitar and sang with the Eddy Howard Orchestra as a very young man. This was probably 1940-1941, through early 1942, when he enlisted in the Army. He sang the lead vocal on the EH rendition of "I'll Be Seeing You", which I can not find anywhere! If anyone can direct me to a recording of that, or relevant photos from that time, I'd be extremely grateful. Hal Williams (real name Harold Legatzke) was my grandfather, and I'd like to find out anything I can about his time with the EHO. Thanks in advance to anyone who may be able to help! Jim Mack ( )
