Plymouth England Date:1944, June 7 Duration:4 min 56 sec Sound:NO SOUND
The HMS Nightingale, a British Mining Tender, flying the Royal Naval Ensign, approaches a pier in Plymouth England. Several Royal Navy officers and sailors are aboard along with a number of Allied soldiers who were rescued after their ships were sunk during the D-Day invasion of Normandy. Most of the rescued soldiers appear relatively unhurt. However, some are ambulatory wounded and others, more seriously injured, are carried off the boat on stretchers, by British sailors. All proceed up a gangway to a processing center. (Note:The soldier seen at 2 minute mark, fiddling with his gloves, is Private 1st class Paul Knor of E company, U.S. 2nd Ranger Battalion, whose boat was sunk while headed for Pointe Du Hoc. He rejoined his Battalion, soon afterwards.)
