EYEWITNESS

I fired unceasingly with my Lewis Gun at the cliff tops. Germans could be seen running into their positions. I tried to adjust my fire by moving the gun manually and managed to burn my hand badly on the barrel, it was so hot. At the same time a bullet passed by me and broke the broom handle next to me. Silly thing was, I remember thinking at the time of how I was going to explain the broken broom on returning to the mother ship. As we landed bullets were whizzing throughout the craft, but we managed to off-load and reverse away from the beach.

A/B Landing Craft Signalman JF Tolhurst, (author’s father) LCA 884
