Here are some photos that I took on Omaha beach with 29th Infantry (and us the 514th), it was 6:30am on the 6th of June (obviously we didn't have a landing craft so I superimposed one in ). What do you think...?

Great photos Mick, especially well done with the landing craft, very Robert Capa :D

I'd love to see a version of that in pure black and white without the scratches, as it would have been printed at the time.

You guys should have looked a lot more worried on the way up that beach :wink:

Well done,

Smudger
