2007 quote from Roland Lewis about Ed. “Ed has a special place in the memory of yours truly dating from February 26, 1945 when he and three or four others picked me up from a shell hole where I had been laying for several hours slowly bleeding to death from a couple of bullet holes. They carried me out at considerable risk to themselves where I was able to get life saving blood transfusions and other treatment.”
