Lieutenant James Montgomery Doohan of the Canadian Army. These photos were taken in England prior to the Allies’ D-Day invasion of France.

Doohan successfully led his unit off the beach after the initial landing. However that night, in an unfortunate friendly fire incident, while Doohan was performing post checks he was shot at by a nervous Canadian sentry Doohan was struck by six bullets, one of which severed the middle finger on his right hand.
