Response to June 7

Brolly read your post earlier today and it is TOPS! Your mention of the 37th Engineers struck a note with me. Several years ago I worked with a retired Gentleman who after some prodding related his story. The 37th and 229 were there to clear the obsticals for the First wave. He jokingly said "you would have thought it was their own private beach by the way they tried to keep them off of it". I could see alittle pain and sadness in his face as he related his recollections of the "Day".

I am trying to look him up now and see if his story is recored if not I will strive to get it.

P.S. Brolly the 37th now hangs out with the 82nd. sorry I just had to... (Grinning like a big ole Cat!)
