A recent e-mail related the following adventure:

"I was about 5 years old and my brother was 6.

We had wandered too far up the Station Road, Portstewart, and were carried down to my anxious mother on the shoulders of the "American Soldiers" from Cromore whom we had met on the road.

My first experience of Chewing gum, and chocolate - and indeed Americans!

They were most amiable and happy lads, and I have always remembered them with pleasure."
