LST-1020 unloads troops in Southern France

This photo shows a Landing Ship Tank unloading GIs on a beach in Southern France. Army port battalions often unloaded LSTs, but in this case the cargo is just walking off. This image and a description of LST-1020 can be found on The specific beach isn't named in the photo caption, but I remember a rocky beach just like this in Marseille, which happened to be the major point for Allied supplies into Southern France.
