Daughter of John Lewis and "Hettie Belle" (Faulkner) Schooley, of Garfield, Benton Co., AR.
Lt. Beatrice Davidson, ANC, is one of our latest arrivals in the ETO. She landed in England about Dec. 11 and has already been transferred once-she will not reveal where. She writes that she has been living in an ancient three-story manorhouse with a whole delegation of American nurses, ten to a room. The only mode of heating personnel or water is the huge fireplaces, which are seldom unattended, the climate being what it is. The lieutenant has certainly arrived places with speed and dexterity. She enlisted about September 10, left two days later for Camp Carson, Colo., to take her Army training, was forthwith stationed at Fitzsimmons General hospital and then whisked to the coast for her ocean voyage. Her husband, Cpl. Bill Davidson of the U.S. Army, _____ bulletins and official ______ for the South Pacific area from his H.Q. in New Caledonia.
