My Dad, Leonard Earl Bennett was in the 94th.  If anyone remembers him I'd love to hear from you.  Also, Dad will be 80 yrs. old this month so on Sept. 21st we're giving him a surprise birthday party.  If any of you war buddies live close to North Carolina & would like to help us make it a great surprise party, please contact me for more information.  Even if you can't join us, just hearing from any of you would be great!  God Bless the Vets :-)

Hi there
I have been looking at your website because I've been trying to find out which American soldiers were in Brittany during the second world war.

I have a specific reason for this.... maybe you can help.

I'm English, living in the centre of England and a year ago my husband and I bought an old farm cottage with a couple of barns in Côte d'Armor, Brittany, France(it used to be called Côte de Nord) in a small hamlet of three or four houses called Le Bouillen. It lies between a village called Mael-Carhaix and the small town of Rostrennon. We have just spent most of the summer over there doing building work, we plan to retire there one day when the children have all left home.

The outbuildings haven't been used for some years. The last time that we know of the oldest building being used was as a stable, although it was clearly a house at one time - there's a really old fireplace at the end and some other unusual features normally only found in very old houses.

This summer we started to rebuild this oldest barn because the roof was beginning to fall in. We had to take out most of the old oak beams because they were rotten and full of woodworm. We also had to rebuild part of the wall to make it more stable (the walls were originally dry stone - no mortar just mud where it was needed to bind it together) We found many wine & spirit bottles, horse shoes and remains of leather harnesses together with some small bottles which look as though they may have held drugs or perfume etc but the most interesting find was an American quarter dollar dated 1941. Unfortunately I don't really know where in the building it had been because my daughter only saw it glinting on the pile of rubbish that we had swept from the earth floor of the barn.

We can find no connection between the barn and America but wondered if any of your 'vets' from that time can help us at all?

I'd love to hear from anyone who may have been in 'our' (adopted) neighbourhood, Mael Carhaix, Kergrist Moelou, St Lubin, Le Croisty or of course Le Bouillen. I'll be happy to correspond with anyone who wants to know what that area is like now I know that the 94th was in Plouay September 1944 from looking at your website but the only other American Divisions that were in Brittany seem to be Armoured Divns.

I hope I am sending this to the right place perhaps if I haven't you will be able to help me re-direct it?

Thanking you for your help
