How 'the longest day' - June 6, 1944, in Normandy - ended for two desperately burned soldiers of the British Army. They were almost certainly tank crewmen, who faced a terrible fate if they were hit by enemy fire. Sherman tanks were known with black humour as Ronsons or Tommy Cookers, because they 'brewed up' so readily. The men who manned the tanks learned to jump for their lives the moment a shell struck - if they were lucky enough to be still able to do so.
According to the caption attached to this image, "Canadian medics help a wounded soldier - Juno Beach, D-Day June 6th 1944." Visuals such as this promote the idea that war doesn't only involve the 'killing' but the 'saving' as well.
