Shermans on landing craft for Normandy


  A 3AD Sherman M4 and its crew is being backed onboard a landing craft in an English harbor in June, 1944, for the crossing to France. Most of the Division's M4's were fitted with deep wading "trunks" (as shown above) to allow them to be unloaded a short distance from shore. The trunks ultimately were unnecessary as the landings could be safely performed directly on shore.
