‘What I have a vivid memory of is the French soldiers – being in a small village and going into a local wine shop in the evening.
‘They had very, very little money. But they were having wine and singing the Marseillaise with enthusiasm. And I inquired, “What is the occasion?”
‘They were going back to the front. Can you imagine that?’
Corporal Frank Buckles, US Army.
Buckles was the last US survivor of World War I.
