In 1944, KT Robbins was stationed with his regiment in Briey, eastern France, where he fell in love with an 18-year-old French girl, Jeannine Pierson née Ganaye. Two months later, he had to leave the village in a hurry for the eastern front, leaving them both wondering whether they would ever meet again. He kept a picture of her, and showed it to French journalists when he went to France for the commemorative ceremonies marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. To his surprise, journalists managed to track her down.
