I think once we talk to Lt. Woodside we might get it straight, so I will wait to see what he says. I saw the list of the battalions of the 262nd which came with the Leopoldville in Dec, and they start with battalion F, which made we wonder where was A-E. It really is a mystery now, I know Lt Woodside is attending a reunion of a different unit, my cousin thought he said the 626. My uncle was definitely in England before Dec 1944 because he was my father's best man at his wedding. My parents were married Feb 1944 in England, my mother is a war bride. I don't think my mother imagined him there, she is 87 this year but as sharp as a tack.
