LVTs on Emirau, 20 March 1944
Here we see a group of amphibious vehicles, mainly LVT (Amtraks), on the beach at Emirau Island in the St. Matthias group, which was invaded by the US Marinces on 20 March 1944. On the left is an LVT-1, the original transport version of the vehicle. Note the two machine guns on the superstructure. The tip of a second LVT-1 can be seen to the right. In the middle is an LVT-2, with its slower cabin showing up in white (with one man sitting on the roof).
