The first British to enter Cherbourg were four RAF members of an Embarkation Unit

The first British to enter Cherbourg were four RAF members of an Embarkation Unit.
They entered the town with the Americans and took up their headquarters by the quayside, so that as soon as port facilities are available, they will be able to handle all RAF personnel and supplies
arriving at our first Continental port.
Leader of the party is 54 years old Wing Commander Leeroy L. Brown, DFC cf the
last war, who was also RAF Embarkation Officer in Cherbourg
in 1939 and 1940 in an office 20 yards from where he is now at
work.
Picture shows: The four men on the roof of their headquarters overlooking the port. In the background is the wreckage of the Gare Maritime and Quai de France; blasted by air attacks. On the right is a shattered German pillbox. Near the wrecked buildings is a Red Cross unit undamaged, believed to have been placed near the docks to prevent the target being attacked.
Left to right. Flying Officer A.G.R. Bremuer, ex fur trader from Hudson Bay, Wing Commander Leeroy L. Brown, D.F.C. ex mining executive from Vancouver, BC, Canada, Flying Officer G.H.M.
