  • "It is uneccessary to record here, how we saw this last year out, or the new in. Though 1944 has had it's bright momenst I will not be sorry to see it gone. I certainly don't claim it as being one of my best years, rather I should term it as being apart of a period, which most of us are going though, rather through obligation than desire." Last entry in Driver Darcy Lynch's war diary. AWMM
