Tate Joseph

Omaha beach

Friday 12 October 2001

Joseph Tate was in the North African theatre before coming back to England.
There he met and married an English girl before setting out for Omahah beach on 6th June.

He was one of the many who lost their life on that beach.
Perhaps due to the landing craft opening the ramp too early, he, like many others with a their heavy packs, was drowned.

I was honored to accompagny his brother and his brothers wife on their pilgrimage to visit the site.

His name is engaved on the Ist division memorial overlooking Omahah beach.
