My father served on HMS Prince Charles from 1940 to 1944 and was crew of LCA 401 for the attack on Omaha Beach. Three of four LCA's were lost that day and my father was awarded the DSM. My father came from Penryn in Cornwall and the captain Hercules Stafford Dennis also lived there. The photos of her before and after her Royal Naval days are superb, I only wish my father could have seen them. Thank you for such an informative site.
