Does anyone know what information Clive based the details of his LCI(L)US-13 drawing on? According to Danny M, Red invasion (conning tower) bands were reserved for those LCIs landing at Juno. The US-13 landed at Sword, which would mean (again, according to Danny M) that its band would have been green. Clive's drawing shows the 13 with a red band and also shows the 13's LTIN as 412, which would have put the US-13 in the later-arriving (H+215) Group 13. This doesn't jibe with my dad's description of conditions on the beach when he made his initial arrival on June 6, nor does the casual demeanor of the Group 13 troops on the beach in this photo: (See Noels attached PIC of US LCIs on Sword above...troops milling around/not taking cover) My dad said that enemy fire was still heavy when he arrived, and I can state that this is not the hyperbole of "first-timer", as he had already participated in three previous amphibious invasions in the Mediterranean, including Anzio. The next photo is the only one I've ever seen of the US-13 with LTIN affixed/painted on: http://www.navsource.org/archives/10/15/1015000915.jpg Unfortunately, the third digit of the LTIN on the front of the conn is not legible in this photo. Number looks to be either 412 or 417. The one on the side of the conn is obscured by a cable. I'm not trying in any way to cast aspersions on Clive's beautiful drawing. I'm only attempting to determine whether he based either of these details on resonable supposition or on specific, RN documentation. In the interest of establishing accurate information for family history, I'd really appreciate answers to my questions. Unfortunately, my dad passed on 12 years ago, so I can't question him about these matters. He was pretty closed mouthed about his combat recollections: certainly anything but a blowhard or a braggart, so I trust the reliability of what little he did tell me about his D-Day experiences. Thanks in advance for any further information regarding this.
