The photo has come to represent the D-Day landings
It was taken by war journalist Jim Mapham, from Normandy’s Sword Beach
The standard-issue military camera was found in Carmarthenshire, Wales
It was first sold in Leicester, when Mapham was living there after the war
Now experts are trying to match the camera with a serial number recorded on the original photo, which is kept at the Imperial War Museum
If authentic, the camera would be an important historical discovery
