A Greatest Generation

Sixty Eight years ago to the day was the launch of Allied Expeditionary forces into Europe to deal with Hitlers domination of the mainland. The D-Day landings: Normandy beaches of Omaha, Sword, Juno, Gold and Utah; served as the stepping-off point to stymie Nazi domination. There were the waves of paratroopers and landing craft troopers that showed their bravery on this day of days but it was the tenfold support behind them that supported their grueling efforts. Here a couple of courier riders disembark from a LCT (Landing Craft Tank) down special ramps to head into the fray running important messages and papers. These motorcycles are Matchless G3 350cc.
