83-FOOTERS RESCUE HUNDREDS IN CHANNEL - Boldly exposing their thin wooden hulls to Nazi shellfire, Coast Guard 83-footers rescued hundreds of Allied fighting men from English channel waters in the D-Day invasion. One of these intrepid "sea mosquitoes" picked up 126 survivors; the flotilla is credited with 1473. Already famed as Atlantic sub busters in earlier stages of the war, Coast Guard 83-footers have been acclaimed by press and radio for their life saving and assistance work in the invasion. This exceptional picture, made by a Coast Guard Combat Photographer, shows an 83-footer maneuvering in the foreground and a Coast Guard assault transport standing out among swarms of invasion craft in the distance.
