I was 15 that summer.

So you must have been 18 when you landed in France a few summers down the line, is that right?

Well almost. I spent year 18 being drafted and infantry replacement training. I understand then you were not sent over as an infantry replacement if you were still 18. I was on the ship to France on 19th birthday with a Division.

ps I wasn’t interested in music anymore - war can concentrate the mind! Regards,
