A Loebnitz pierhead, just arrived by tow from Portsmouth, England, was joined to those already in place at the end of a pontoon causeway. It drove its 'spuds" to the bottom and formed part of a platform from which LSTs could discharge from both upper and lower decks. In the background is Pointe du Hoe, and the western shore arm of the concrete breakwater.
