Gun No. 3 – Ike and her crew didn’t come ashore on D-Day, but when they did they played their part well, protecting a vital airstrip on one side of them and a couple of divisions of infantry on the other; they fought enemy snipers hidden in the hedgerows, captured prisoners, and destroyed an unknown number of enemy aircraft.
