THE INDEXES ON THE MAP

There are two types of Index, each based upon a simple but clear map reference system. The map can be used on its own but all the information is cross-referred by the map references to the recommended stops in Major and Mrs Holt's Battlefield Guide to The Normandy Landing Beaches

1. Location. Thus upon seeing a marker Marker at reference H32 on the British side, the index explains that it is the site of the memorial to the Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada.


2. Thematic. If wishing to find the memorial stained glass window to the US 82nd AB at Ste Mère Eglise, the index explains that it is at grid reference R13 on the US side.

THIS IS JUST A VERY SMALL SECTION OF THE MAP.
