Welcome to B.G.I.B.M. Number Eight!
This month the spotlight is on some of the US Army officers of the Quartermaster Section @ G-40 who married locally, two of them doing so at Porthkerry Road Methodist Church, Barry (see front cover). QM personnel seemed to be stationed in the area for a long time compared with other US servicemen, giving them more opportunity to meet the locals.
These officers were attached to the Quartermaster Section, G-40, as of April 1st, 1944. Those highlighted tied the knot...
