Chaudières Embarking for Normandy Assault
Chaudières Embarking for Normandy Assault

In Harold Beament's painting, members of the Régiment de la Chaudière board the Canadian infantry landing ship HMCS Prince David prior to D-Day.

A former passenger liner and armed merchant cruiser, Prince David had been converted to a Landing Ship Infantry (Medium), and given its own flotilla of landing craft for transporting soldiers ashore. Prince David would transport the Chaudières and British troops across the English Channel before loading them into Landing Craft Assault (LCAs) for the final run to the beach. Many of Prince David's landing craft were subsequently lost to either damage by German beach defences or mortar fire.
