After that we threw roses into the river as a commemoration. After a last salute, the ceremony ended with a glass of Whiskey, Bob’s favorite drink. After de ceremony there was dinner. We were very suprised and honored to receive Bob’s Soldiers Service Book. Bob lied about his age when he entered the Army. When he signed on 14 febr 1941, he was only 15 years old ! Look at the dates in his Service book.
