  • Before the war started he approached my father @@ Frank O'Dwyer and told him that he knew he was going too be killed in this war and he knew my father was going too be involved with his death. Then after the Battle off Monte cassino in 1944 my father was helping to bury the dead and came across John Strang and buryed him. ahh guess some humans are all knowing and psychic about their futures. - ????
