KT Robbins was 24 when he fell for Jeannine Ganaye, 18, while in Briey, north-east France. But he was sent to the Eastern Front and never saw her again.

Both married but he always kept her photo. He showed it to her when they reunited after a TV crew tracked her for a D-Day event.

Upon seeing her, KT, now 98, told Jeannine, 92: “I always loved you. You never got out of my heart.”

Jeannine confessed: “When he left in the truck, I cried, of course, I was very sad. I wish after the war he hadn’t returned to America.”


She learned English in the hope that her American love would some day come back to her.

After a few hours together, it was time to leave as Robbins had to head to Normandy.

With tears in their eyes and having agreed to meet up again, Robbins said: “Jeannine, I love you girl.”
