July 1, 1918 – Full diary entry:
“Signed pay roll.
Picked blueberries on the mountains.
The scenery is beautiful here in the Alps.”
If I’m right about where he was (Saulxures-sur-Moselotte), he was not kidding about the beauty. And even today, a regional specialty (”highly prized by gourmets”) is the wild blueberry tart.
Where was Robert today? See the timeline.
