Joan of Arc

June 15, 1918 – Full diary entry:

“Cut wood in A.M.

Off duty in P.M. Went back to Co. B, stayed all night. Raining.

Are camped where Joan of Arc was born?”


The question mark is written in pen, the rest of this entry is in pencil.

There are a couple of Joan of Arc references in the next few days, and I can’t be sure what locations Robert was writing about. He was in or near Géroménil, and Joan of Arc’s birthplace is Domrémy-la-Pucelle, which is more than 40 miles away. He was billeted in the forest, away from the rest of Company B, so it’s hard to tell exactly where he was – but this still seems too far away.
