Project Description

D-Day anniversary walking map

I was commissioned to produce an educational map telling the story of the 47 Royal Marine Commando. On D-Day, 6 June 1944, 47 Royal Marine Commando landed on ‘Gold Beach’ near Asnelles and marched 20 km behind enemy lines in order to liberate Port en Bessin on 7 June 1944. On the anniversary of D-Day, the map retraces the commando route and tells the story of their mission as well as the courageous actions of the French community who helped them.
