Hq Co 254th Infantry in Rexigen, France;  The story
behind the pies:  The outfit that occupied this house before
us damned near burnt it down using a gas fired heater.  
When we arrived the lady of the house saw us bring a gas
heater in and panicked.  She pleaded with us not to use it
so we complied.  As a token of her appreciation she baked
three pies for us.
