Aboard HMS Black Prince
"Keep moving chaps, keep it moving, Jerry will be expecting us." It was the morning of D-Day, my men and I were aboard a fleet of British and American ships, steaming across the Channel towards the coast of Normandy to embark on the greatest mission ever. We were in a long line of men waiting to board our landing craft that would take us to our beach. We had all heard the rumours that our beach was the best defended and would probably have the worst casualty rating of them all. "We are just lucky to be in the second wave," Sergeant Wood had remarked over breakfast, until someone had reminded him casualty rates for the second wave were expected to be nearly as high as the first. So we lined up waiting to board our landing craft as we shuffled forward in near silence, watching the sea rise and fall and the barrage balloons drift across the dim morning sky and I wondered if I would live to see home again.
