Sword beach to Caen ............ and back.

Commanding C troop, 245 A.TK BTY R.A. [ M10 tank destroyers with 17pnd's ] my father, Stan Heath, could always tell the story of how he reached his objective on D Day just outside Caen. He then found that no other forces had arrived.
It took three days to get back avoiding the Germans and hoping his guns didn't get knocked out by our own artillery.
One of so many stories!
