Hi everyone. Does anyone know anything at all about the Liverpool Irish on D-Day. My dad Joseph Smith was with the 8th Irish on D-Day, and landed on Juno beach at Mike Green near the village of Grey Sur Mer, along with Canadian forces, namely the Royal Winnipeg Rifles. I've been told that the Liverpool Irish were part of the 7th beach group, but I'm not sure. Is this right ? If so what was the beach groups job. My dad stayed on Juno for 6 weeks before his battalion was disbanded. He was transferred to the 1st Batt The Royal Ulster Rifles.
