Cyril Simms

Royal Marines, D-day Veteran

He served on the costal defences (the Trout Line). The aim was to target mini-submarines that were targeting our (Merchant) supply ships.

On D-day his LCG (Landing Craft Gun), which was now part of Combined Operations, remained just off the shore at June (then Sword) beach and was used to clear the enemy from attacking our troops landing on the beaches.
