LCI(L) 249, Bernières-sur-Mer, 6 June 1944

Royal Canadian Navy telegraphist James Grant took this photograph from LCI(L) 249 of troops going ashore under fire on D-Day.

Soldiers from the landing craft (foreground) use a walkway and ramp (centre) to enter the water and wade ashore under enemy fire. At the water's edge are tanks and other vehicles that had been unloaded from other types of landing craft to support the infantry, including two amphibious Sherman tanks (right) and a Churchill AVRE (Armoured Vehicle, Royal Engineers) (left), designed to deal with enemy fortifications and obstacles.
