Reg and Huguet

Reg Bay has kept Huggett’s picture in his wallet for nearly eighty years.

Huguet left the picture in a Reg’s truck, thanking him for sharing a jam with her while he waited for the advance in France as World War II raged.

The meeting happened by chance amid the horrors of war near the shores of Normandy, a few weeks after D-Day, but the memory lasted a lifetime.

So much so that Rigg, 99, wanted to meet her again, and they dated after 78 years.
