The D-Day Story Collection

map

A colour 'Bigot' map showing Allied air operations at the time of D-Day. The map shows operations on the D-Day itself and bombing operations throughout north west Europe which were, presumably, carried out beforehand. The map shows anti-U-Boat and anti-surface ship patrols, the routes of air forces carrying airborne forces on D-Day and the areas patrolled by tactical and reconaissance aircraft. Brian Warner worked in a RAF map depot during his National Service and 'rescued' this map from material that was about to be destroyed.
