War diary of 8th Canadian Brigade

Page 1 of 2

Most army units were required to keep a war diary as a record of their activities. Operational orders, intelligence reports and other material were also inserted. This is an extract from the war diary for 6 June 1944 of the 8th Canadian Brigade. This was one of three brigades in the 3rd Canadian Division, and landed on Nan sector of Juno beach. (Each of the assault beaches was divided into sectors - Love, Mike, Nan, etc. - and sub-sectors - green, red or white.)

Catalogue reference: WO 179/2886 (6 June 1944)
