When doing a little research I came across this link:


According to this article the American 5th Infantry Division, United States Army had it's Red Cross Club at the side of St David's buildings beside the Methodist church.

The attachment shows the mural they painted on the wall (as the article says I assume its long gone)

I had a cousin who worked

I was a primary school girl
I still can see their open topped
Jeeps go down Church Street..
Those were the days..
