An oblique aerial photograph showing small US landing craft, probably LCVPs, circling off the beaches before landing, probably during an exercise before D-Day. It is part of a series of photographs, most of which were taken by Lieutenant Commander Fred Gerretson USNR and men of his unit, US Combat Photographic Unit 8, in Britain 1943-1944, showing D-Day training and rehearsals, troops loading for D-Day, etc (1997/183 to 1997/268/). Some were taken by other US units.
