M4 "Sherman" tank with bulldozer blade attachment (wearing number "82019-Y" and nicknamed "Defiance")
On a European landing beach, 1944.
The event is probably either a rehersal for the Normandy invasion, held at Slapton Sands, England, in the spring of 1944, or the invasion of southern France in August.
Photographed by a U.S. Coast Guard photographer from USS Samuel Chase (APA-26), using a 35mm camera.
