Caribou Club

Heroes Remember

I was in camp, but I had a leave and the next morning I took the train up to London, and this is really something. I went in to London, I went up to London and went into the Caribou Club and a big bunch of them around there and a bunch just coming out and I looked behind them there and a little guy there, my brother. Didn’t even know he was overseas because I didn’t keep in touch. I couldn’t believe it and they were just back from Germany two days before, Germany. “What are you doing here?” “Well, hi Leo, long time no see.” I said, “Yeah, come on, let’s go.” I won’t tell you where we went, but you can guess. And we had about four days, man, it was just great and I didn’t even know he was, I knew that he joined the militia but I wasn’t sure which, and here he was just back from, I never.

While on leave in London Mr. Bishop explains that you never know who you may run into.
