- for Cornelius Ryan 2Your name ________________

Did you by any chance keep a diary of what happened to you that day?

Were any of your friends killed or wounded either during landing or during the day? cf. Scarlet Dawn

Do you remember any conversations you had with them before they became casualties'? cf. Scarlet Dawn

Were you wounded? No

Do you remember what it was like--that is, do you remember whether you felt any pain or were so surprised that you felt nothing?

Do you remember seeing or hearing anything that seems funny now, even though it may not have seemed funny at the time? cf. Scarlet Dawn

Do you recall any incident, sad or heroic or simply memorable, which struck you more than anything else?
