Assault craft and a half submerged Sherman tank, Normandy, June 1944.

Photograph from an album compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3/4 County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, North West Europe.

Although Allied intelligence had identified which areas of beach were suitable for the landing of vehicles, several tanks, jeeps and lorries were lost in water that was deeper than expected or in the shifting sands. The invasion beaches were also choked with disabled and sunken landing vessels which made unloading vehicles even more hazardous.
