I remember how much we trusted those GCA controllers to talk us down through those winter fogs to safe landings.
Now you have seen my home for my younger years!. I was born in Normanville (just up the road! from Evreux) – and lived in Fauville for most of my young years until my mother married an American GI from the base where she worked at the NCO club! I came to the US at 16 years old and knew everything!.. the base (Now Base Aerienne 105) – was my favorite hangout! I knew most of not all the knoocks and crannies! and loved to see the old C-130 (many I ended flying with!) and its all great!.. I remember the old C-119 Flying Boxcars! and then the C-130s took over – listening to them running up engines daily!.. its a sound even today I can identity from just listening to it!.. there is no other sound quite like it!.. and you never forget it!.. I remember driving at the age of 13 one of the NCO Club managers Jaguar XKE at well over 140 mph on that runway 23 (near the West End – closest to Fauville South!).. and I never would have believe my friend Michel would ever turn gray!. but he did!.. so I had to slow down!.. LOL!.. Evreux-Fauville Air Base hold a very dear spot in my heart – now and always!. Great info!.. I love and appreciate all of your dedications – you where all far away from home – in a foreign land – with people who where the least friendly of all!.. but I still remember that when I walked to school – one of you would always stop and give me a ride to Netreville School!.. Thank you all!.. for the opportunity to repay in kindness!.. more to come…

Even after so many years, Evreux still carries so many memories. I recall my first introduction
To the base in 1955 when, after a long train ride from Bremerhaven and a short bus trip from
The train station in Evreux the first step off the bus was into mud. That was followed by three years of an outstanding addition to my education. I often think of the hares that rise out of
The ground at dusk!
