And did he marry in 1941 (you said you had info up to 1955).  It seems a bit odd that your Lucien was born in 1919 with a father Percy and there is another Lucien born 1917 also father Percy.

It may be that Solarsal could comment?

Looking back at Solarsal's posts I would say that the both Lucien's are the same person and that the difference in dates of birth is simply one of those errors that appears over the years.

Don't want to take this off topic, but can anyone supply any general info about the American Forces use of interpreters in Europe during WWll ?

My parents had come to Britain as children, and were employed by the US army in Switzerland (I think,) as interpreters, the British forces having rejected them as "aliens".
