Sword Beach 1944
Guy De Lillio

Above: a scratch built LCA approaches SWORD Beach.

In the pictures below: the Last trooper departs the LCA: RN figures are Matchbox; assault troops are Battlefield Miniatures. A waterproofed Airfix Universal carriers protect troops resting following a difficult landing. Two officers appear unfazed by continual shelling. A Churchill "Funny" bridge appears in the background: the AFV is modified with a scratch built bridging device.
