I've read this article and thought it was quite interesting due it's historical role in assisting the U.S. beach sectors of Utah and Omaha. The Canadians played a very important part in this vital aspect of Operation Neptune. June 5/6th 1944.
The Royal Navy also played an important role in the Landing Craft Infantry (LCI's) in transporting U.S. soldiers to these beach heads!
I've seen a number of photo's showing British matelots talking with U.S. troops in LCI's prior to the undertaking of invasion in Portsmouth Habour,England.
Pity there roles haven't been acknowledge that much in movies lately.
