Lt. kelso Horne

Just outside the town of La Haye du Puits at the foot of Hill 95. This hill was the last battle for the 82nd Airborne Division. Lt Kelso Horne was injured during this battle but survived to lead a full life. His last wish after he died in 2000, was to be buried at the foot of Hill 95. His ashes were brought over from the USA accompanied by his Family for a service in the Church at Ste Mere Eglise and then on to a farewell lunch at the Roosevelt Cafe on Utah beach before he was laid to rest here. The name Kelso Horne may not be familiar but his photograph was used on Time Life and became famous. his wife on seeing the photo said "Thank goodness he is still wearing his wedding ring"
