A photo I don’t think I’ve ever seen of the tanks at ’t Stort:

The front-most Crab from LCT 1005 (the one on the extreme left in the photo above), with some British soldiers on it:

This photo comes from one Reg Bennett, who, according to the letter his photos were with, was a member of a British DUKW company that transported supplies from Middelburg to Westkapelle.

The two LVTs that were on the landward side of the remains of the old dyke, with some sand for the new dyke already piled over one of them:

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen that photo before, but I could never find it again when I was looking for it earlier this year. It’s also from Reg Bennett.

And Willem D. Passenier again, on an LVT that has clearly been stripped of some of its useful bits:

I also came across this, in a picture frame:

I’m assuming this is from a Chrysler-built Sherman …?
