The column to the right is a 1936 article by a former American officer recalling his memories of the Armistice news far behind the lines at the Doughboy embarkation center in St. Nazaire, France:
"It was eleven in the morning when we first heard the news. A piercing whistle from one of the steamers in the harbor, a sudden blast so loud and so startling that even the nurses in their rest camp in La Baule fifteen kilometers away could hear it...L'ARMISTICE EST SIGNÉ...by noon the entire town was outdoors; a truck load of German prisoners rolled past, apparently quite as happy as the rest of us."
