I have just listened to reels three and four of the IWM interview with Maurice Franklyn 98 LAA RA Franklin, Maurice (Oral history) (27797) He served in 305 battery of 98 Light AA and claims to have landed on Omaha Beach. In Reel three her explains that his detachment served a 40mm AA Gun mounted on the front of a US tank Landing Craft. he then claims in reel 4 to have followed a Sherman tank on foot and joined the assault. I have never heard the story before. If this is historically accurate then the Light AA on Omaha Beach is a great story. But is this history, fantasy or muddled memory? Can anyone corroborate the presence of British AA detachments on US Landing craft or ships or a landing craft crew coming ashore?
