A personal account of a Yorkshire lad’s experience aboard a landing craft support vessel on D-Day
Like so many who make the journey to Normandy on or around June 6, Jo Halford has personal reason to attend. Her father, Geoff Bulless, was there 75 years ago. As a 19-year-old, Geoff had joined the navy and after some rudimentary training was drafted onto a landing craft support vessel. His was LCS 259 commanded by 2d Lt E A. Tiplady RNVR, a former policeman of Beverley, East Yorkshire.
