Operation Overlord, 6th June 1944.


Canadian troops of the North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment, 8th Canadian Infantry Brigade, 3rd Canadian Infantry Division, disembark from an LCA (Landing Craft Assault) onto Nan Red beach, Juno area, near St Aubin-sur-Mer, at about 8.00am on 6 June 1944, while under fire from German troops in the houses facing them.




Amazing to think that one of these soldiers found the time to sling his weapon and use the box brownie for our benefit. . .instead of running like hell for cover. . . .
