12 June 1944

D + 6

1030:- Good night’s rest last night -- no G.Q. Beautiful June day. QUINCY only ship firing in this sector -- about 6 to 8 salvos an hour. Flag has returned aboard. Just visited the signal bridge and scanned the horizon with a large glass. To our port side in the “0” sector there is a large concentration of ships -- sweeping along the coast. The shipping is so concentrated that one cannot see the beach between hulls. Saw four sunken ships near the beach. Bow of the CORRY sticking straight up to the heavens. Several landing craft also beached. The beach itself is studded with obstacles and looks like a virgin forest after fire and flood. No landing activity at this time.
