What exactly are the dates we're using for this theme? IE to what date after June 6th? The "Normandy" campaign continued for some time, but I wanted to check before posting anything.

Thanks!

Joel

Scottish Borderers Dan.

The caption under the picture reads - Scottish Borderers set up a captured Hotchkiss machine gun to help clear the remaining Nazi stragglers out of the town centre.

Here is my contribution to the topic. This is a copy of a map that one of my uncles brought back from Omaha Beach. As you can see, it is a map of the area around WN-62.
