June 21, 1945: Leaving 6th Canadian Field Dressing Station
June 21 — Finally left 6 F.D.S. It is not just a memory. Fred, Gordie and I started out early in the morning, drove to Apeldoorn, Zutphen, Lochem to Enschede where we joined 21 F.D.S. and I took over command. We are in the most beautiful billets we have ever been in — in a very beautiful town. We are not doing much work. Dibb goes back to Canada on Monday. Saw Freddie Jenner yesterday. He will be up to visit me on Monday.
(Doc Alexander had been in command of the 6th Canadian Field Dressing Station since Feb. 19, 1944. He landed at Juno Beach with the 6FDS on June 27).
