We picked up Lord Mountbatten on the way and dropped him off at Gibralter where he flew home. On D day we landed on Gold beach. We were the first on the beach and we were fighting while other troops were still being landed. We were still there when the specially constructed floating harbour arrived but that only lasted about three weeks being damaged by severe weather. nbsp;
