Hey Lestayo,

My first hunch was that this is Omaha beach. But I had a look at Google earth and i coudn't find a matching location. It has some details wich are similar to Colleville sur mer and Cabourg. But there is enough to see that tells other wise. Also the coast line is to small to be omaha beach.
I also had a look at gold juno and sword and ofcourse utah. Utah has ma marshis layback. and the other three are to densly build and to brown colored to have any resemblence to this one. So i will keep my eyes open...

Cheers Buck

If Buck_Compton doubt about the place... I have to post a little hint:
Beach landed in 1944. More than 725 men were killed in the landing.

Slapton sands - Devon. Exercise Tiger a training for the landings on Utah beach. The large landing force was intercepted by E-boats. The whole incident was kept secret until after the end of the war.

Congratulations, Papa!!. You are the second resolving the challenge (the first in public). I have to say that Buck (of course) solved it a week ago but he doesnĀ“t want to finish the challenge.

Shortly after midnight on 28 April 1944, nine German torpedo boats moved into Lyme Bay, along the southern coast of England near a place called Slapton Sands. Drawn in by heavier than normal radio traffic, they suddenly found themselves caught up in the midst of Operation TIGER -- one of several amphibious exercises secretly being conducted by the Allies in preparation for the Normandy Landing.
In minutes the German torpedoes hit their mark. One LST (landing ship, tank) was seriously crippled. Another burst into flames trapping many of the victims below deck. And a third sank immediately, sending hundreds of U.S. soldiers and sailors to a watery grave.

It was the costliest training exercise in all of World War II. As the bodies washed ashore in days ahead, the official count rose to 749.

Quartermaster soldiers onboard LST 531 were among the hardest hit. The 3206th Quartermaster Service Company was virtually destroyed. Of its 251 officers and men, 201 were killed or wounded. The 557th Quartermaster Railhead Company also lost 69 men.

The brave men who died that day contributed to the success in France six weeks later. Indeed their sacrifice was a Prelude to Victory.

Hey Lestayo,

This was quite a tough one :) I found it to hard to give a decent hint without disclosing this one to every one :)

Currahee
