Somehow my grandfather had time to record his experience during D-Day.  Here are two pages of his war diary and a couple photos after he went ashore at some point later.  Wish I had the N1 jacket.

One of the 'big shots' on board was the 29th Division commanding general.  There was also a correspondent and photographer on board so I imagine there are photos out there somewhere that I haven't seen yet.
