Meeting with Douglas Baines. He Landed in the river Dives just after 12 oclock. It took him 3 hours to get out of the water. Hided for 3 days on a farm where cooperated with the French resistance (one of his medals). Was captured near Sallenelles
He lost his leg in this period. Although I see him for years now at the cafe of Arlette Gondree I did not know that.

Big surprise at the Pegasus Bridge was the meeting with the 29th Inf. Division 115 Regiment. Specially Malvin Walker, 94 years. Musician and composer.
