WESTERN TASK FORCE
JUNE 1944

From: Commander Gunfire Support Craft – 11th Amphibious Force

It is not known how much air support was requested and used during the period the beach was being subjected to such heavy mortar fire.

But from the point of view of an observer off the beach, the destruction of tanks and craft along the beach by enemy guns not visible from the water, might have been alleviated by a bomb drenching operation, even if based only on an approximate location of the enemy batteries.

It is possible that this may have been done but, if so, it was not observed by personnel in my headquarters ship.
