The sinking Coast Guard manned USS LCI(L)-85 comes alongside another ship to transfer her survivors, after she was hit by German shells off Omaha Beach on D-Day, June 6th 1944.

Note casualties on deck, including a man on a stretcher (left center) whose face has been obscured by wartime censors.

Also note binoculars atop a chart in the LCI(L)'s conning tower (upper right) and life raft (at left) with paddles secured to its side.
