    Utah Beach - American troops debarking from LST's under fire from Germanicon artillery
    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    More likely an LSM, definitely not an LST.

    The Royal Navy LCT my Grandad was on, which landed at Utah on D-Day carrying US Combat Engineers. On the left, number 2011.

    Parked up in a canal/river, post D-Day where my granddad explained they spent a couple of weeks drunk!

    The Bow (front pointy end) seems to match that in the OP picture


    "The planned order of beaching on Utah assigned seven Britishicon Mk5 LCTs to the U.S. Army’s 238 ECB. The craft involved were 2056 and 2057 with the men of Company A, 2477 and 2304 with the men of Company B and 2011, 2074 and 2302 with the men of Company C. We now know that LCT 2331 was a late addition."

    D DAY, HMLCT 2304, HM LANDING CRAFT TANK,

    You have to love that there is washing hanging across the foredeck of 2240.
