ROSCOE NYE DAVIS

Above: Roscoe and Rolla his brother were both in France at the same time. One came back, and sadly, the other did not :(

Note: His stone may only be a memorial one - it's not known if his body was returned - some were, many were not. Picture of his stone sent to me by Bill Boone - thanks, BB - kbz
