According to the book description of A Soldier's Odyssey: To Remember Our Past as It Was, "How the author adapted to his new surroundings. The drama wrapped around the six hour pass obtained at Shanks to go home to see his folks. The trip across the tempestuous North Atlantic, and the nine days sick at sea! Time spent in a dingy campsite on a bleak coast of Wales, UK. Suffered from a nameless fear aboard the ill fated Leopoldville. Transported in 40/8s. In Liege's rail yards was attacked by "Buzz Bombs". Slept in a private home for the night. Marched nearly all of the next day. His company was hit by its own artillery (friendly fire) with devastating consequences."
