Taken Monday 12th June, 1944, Utah Beach, Normandy, France
(US National Archives and Records Administration)

"Jeeps of the 261st Amphibious Medical Battalion's A-Company race across Utah Beach to deliver front line casualties to the waiting Landing Ship Tank USS-134 for transport to hospitals in Great Britain.

Operation Neptune, more commonly known as D-Day, occurred just under one week before this photograph was taken. This invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe by Allied Forces on 6 June 1944 saw 5,000 vessels carrying more than 160,000 troops make landfall in France on the first day.

Over the course of the summer, more than 3 million Allied soldiers made their way into France. USS LST-134, which had been built almost a year prior, would also see action in the invasion of southern France and the occupation of Okinawa halfway across the world a year later."

– Jordan J. Lloyd

This historical photograph has been meticulously researched and rendered into colour from a black and white original by a skilled artisan, continuing a craft tradition that has existed since photography began.


"USS LST-134 beached at Normandy, 12 June 1944, as jeeps driving along the invasion beach carry casualties to the waiting ship. LST-134 carried the casualties back to Britain for hospitalization."
