We were okay, but five of the others who had broken out of the rail car were killed. I lost track of Gifford when we were sent to different work camps near Dresden. CUB 12/2016

  1. Killed in the bombing of Stalag XII-A near Limberg, Germany.
  2. Abstracts from an affidavit (of which there are no copies available) by Philippe L. Berube, a Private in the 1st Gun Section of Btry A, 589th FA BN, made after his return from being a POW in Germany:
  3. "About dawn on the 17th enemy attacks were renewed upon us in our new position. Our Bn was ordered to displace again immediately. Lt Wood gave Btry A march order, and directed that we move, by vehicle, through Schoenberg to St Vith (over a road with which our drivers were familiar.)
  4. "The 3rd and 4th sections and the other vehicles of our Btry were able to move out with reasonable promptness. I presume that Lt O'Toole followed their tail. But our section was much delayed.
  5. "Lt Wood was a swell guy to the Btry he partly commanded and no one of us thought of him and Lt O'Toole the same as we commonly felt of average officers. We regarded them as men who were concerned with our welfare in preference to their own"
