Engineers At Work
ENGINEERS removing an 88-mm. gun and cleaning out ammunition from an enemy flak ship which was sunk in the harbor of Isigny. It was heavily armored and armed. The center tower was made of two sheets of heavy armor plating with a core of concrete about eight inches thick. Smoke still rose from the town. SGT. JOHN SCOTT
