Allied Tanks and Equipment Pour into Normandy
Allied Tanks and Equipment Pour into Normandy Shepherded across the English Channel by the Allied Navies under Admiral Sir Bertram Ramsay, tanks and equipment in ever-increasing quantities land on wide stretches of the Invasion Coast in broad daylight. With barrage balloon protection, calmly and methodically the work of unloading goes on. Many vehicles, such as the tanks in the top photograph, have been specially waterproofed to keep their mechanism unaffected by immersion in deep water as they drive ashore.
