Jeep 4x4 carrying casualties - Normandy 1944

Jeep 4x4 at Normandy Invasion, 1944

A Jeep 4x4 brings casualties to a LST for evacuation from the Normandy beachhead, 13 June 1944.

Note the bulldozer just beyond the Jeep 4x4, and the line of German prisoners of war marching by in the background.

This appears to be "Utah" Beach.
