July 15, 1943

This is not a peach orchard but an almond orchard. Poop, Bob Purves and I went to Beach for service. Troops coming ashore by the thousands. Indian Gurkhas and Ethiopians both present. Amphibian trucks bearing troops and supplies ashore to destinations. Everything going well.

Glimpse of the invasion coast as an armoured vehicle was being towed ashore from landing craft. Alexander family collection.
