Artist's Description

I stand here now
Amongst brave men
With whom I’ve stood before
The last time when we landed
On June 6th of ’44
Back then we were all young men
Eighteen or little more
Their lives cut short that morning
On this distant windswept shore
I stand here now and wonder
What would they have become
Had they survived that morning
Their lives allowed full run
One thing I know for certain
Of which there is no doubt
These brave young men
My pals from then
Would be old
White haired with wrinkled brow
Just like me
As I stand here now.
Tony Chapman, archivist/historian for the LST and Landing Craft Association (Royal Navy)
