D-Day 75th Anniversary

Pegasus Bridge Visual Puzzle

At ease.

This image has just come in from one of our reconnaissance Spitfires. British High Command wants to know how close, the gliders of 'D' Company, 2nd (Airborne) Battalion, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, were to the Caen Canal Bridge in Normadie on 5th June 1944.


Click the image above to expand into a scalable/zoomable high-resolution image.

So Officer, where EXACTLY in the image is Caen Canal Bridge (a.k.a. Pegasus Bridge) and the three landed Horsa gliders led by Major John Howard? The conclusion of Operation Deadstick lies in your hands, erm.... eyes, Officer! Do not give up until you have found the spot. We're depending on your keen eyes to give an accurate report to British High Command.

That is all.

After the Dogs of War are let slip, let us smoke the Pipes Of Peace.

June 6th is the 75th anniversary of #DDay these before and after images show the gravity of destruction and power of repair.

Particularly moving is US Veteran Frank Devita's account of the day.
