Tor Cross, Devon: 1 reviews and 1 photos
During practice landings Operation Tiger on April 28th 1944, over 640 American service men were killed by a passing German Torpedo boat when their landing boats were hit. The sea here can be very trecherous & deep, which are other factors for the great loss of life.
The tank has been a memorial here for a good few years now & there are always poppies & flowers laid here. It is the norm to hear American accents in the season at the memorial tank.
