The American soldier was wounded at Normandy. Rescuers placed the unconscious Yank onto a boat and ferried him to Hastings were he was admitted to a large hospital ward. When the young soldier awoke, he realized he had been seriously injured and that everyone else in the ward appeared unconscious and similarly damaged.
The American looked all around and finally spied a nurse walking into the ward. “Nurse, did they bring me here to die?”
The English Rose smiled and promptly said, “Why no sir, they brought you here yesterdai.”
