Response to Thanks again..
now Steve....half of which time has been spent as the Official Archivist/Historian for the LST and Landing Craft Association.(Royal Navy). I am here to answer enquiries from relaives and veterans alike....in the main nowadays I find myself answering queries concerning Royal Navy personnel who were lost....not just in Normandy, but throughout the period 1942-1945.
Also of course many write stating that a relative was present with a landing craft on D-Day...asking me which which one..?? If they can supply a craft number I can usually tell them where their relatives were intended to be.?
At the same time I do try to recruit new members from amongst the veterans who contact me....in addition, when time allows, I write for Combined Operations webite...all in all I am kept very busy...I would have it no other way.
I am fortunate, I have here all the craft both British and American that were milling around the south coast of England during the Summer of 1944....with the craft numbers are the flotillas/divisions/squadrons of which they formed part, also here the beaches/landing zones of Normandy to which they were assigned.
