BHC 006018 British Troops head inland from King Green towards Lavatory Pan Villa

Ref: BHC 006018

British Troops head inland from King Green towards Lavatory Pan Villa. Note the Sherman Crab and AVRE on the left. Mont Fleury Battery was to the right of the house and 200 metres further inland. The significance of the house as a landmark is obvious.

Vehicles just off the beach on KING Sector of GOLD Area. 6 June 1944.

The Sherman Mk.V Crab Mk.I Flail tank on the left belongs to 'C' Squadron, Westminster Dragoons, 30 Armoured Brigade, 79 Armoured Division and the Churchill AVRE to 81 Assault Squadron, 6 Assault Regiment RE, 1 Assault Brigade RE, also of 79 Armoured Division.
The road starts from the beach as Exit 3 and marked the boundary between KING RED (to the left or east) and KING GREEN Beaches in GOLD Area, and was easily identified for offshore by LAV PAN (Lavatory Pan) Villa, thus nicknamed for the circular drive in front of it.
