二戰:士兵與他在法國遇到的女孩重歸於好

這對從威爾士西部趕來的雷格來說是一個適當介紹自己的機會,因為他們在1944年夏天短暫的相遇,當時他20歲,胡格特14歲,只持續了幾秒鐘。

軍用卡車司機雷格回憶說,"一輛麵包車停了下來,司機是一個叫喬迪的小伙子,他給我們提供了一罐朝天椒,"他把自己的思緒帶回了戰爭期間被稱為法萊斯峽谷的那個不知名的村莊,當時他與一個不知名的法國少年面對面。

一直以來,讓雷格感到親切的不僅僅是胡蓋特在法國長老會外的那張黑白照片,而是有朝一日能夠追蹤到她的希望。


This was a chance for Reg, who had travelled from west Wales, to introduce himself properly as their fleeting encounter in the summer of 1944 when he was 20 and Huguette was 14 lasted for all of a few seconds.

"A van pulled up driven by a chap called Geordie and he offered us a can of pilchards," military truck driver Reg recalled, taking his mind back to that unknown village in an area known during the war as the Falaise Gap when he came face-to-face with an unknown French teenager.

It is not just the black and white photograph of Huguette outside a French presbytery that has remained close to Reg all this time, it was the hope of one day tracking down her down.
