This is a scene in part of the crew's quarters on board a ship used for treating the wounded, mostly burn cases. To the left, one of the men is being given plasma, others are being bandaged, and a seaman seated at the table keeps a record of treatment and condition of patients.  In the first days of the invasion, after unloading their cargo of men and vehicles, LSTs brought back wounded and prisoners in constant streams. Then, after discharging them, the loading would start again and soon they would be underway again, perhaps bound for a different beach each time.
