It is tricky because 1 British Infantry Division initially landed on Peter Beach 10km up the coast from Anzio itself – the area between Tor San Lorenzo in the north and Lavinio in the south. But, because the beach turned out to be awful for getting vehicles ashore and off it, the Division quickly switched all further landings to Anzio harbour which the Rangers & Commandos had quickly secured for use on the first night. I am confident that the guns would have come ashore at the harbour but cannot be certain without seeing the War Diaries.

Get hold of me through my website and I will send you a map showing the landing sites.
