Troop ship anchored near HMCS TRENTONIAN with French Canadians soldiers, begins to disembark soldiers into landing craft on 7 June 1944 off the Normandy beachhead. When the Canadian soldiers noticed the Maple Leaf on TRENTONIAN’s funnel the soldiers cheered their navy brothers, which was promptly returned by corvettes ship’s company.
