Norman L Fleming 29th Infantry Division

Norman, was the driver of an Artillery-truck in the 29th Infantry Division.. He was originally scheduled to land in the morning on D-day. Due to the slow progression of the beach, Bradley had decided in the morning that no more material was to be send to the beach, before the beachdefenses had been cleared and the passages had been cleared. At 18.00 Norman's truck was finally put on the beach by a landingcraft. Artillery was still landing on the beach. This was the same section of the beach as where Ralph Fancher had landed just before. Norman could drive inland under cover of the naval guns. Norman says that the Navy fired on the bluffs when he drove onto the beach.
