'Top Secret' D-Day orders emerge

6 posts in this topic

The inch-thick document – which should have been destroyed at the end of the Normandy invasion – gives a detailed account of the navy’s role in the landings.

The orders were issued to Royal Navy officers who were involved in Operation Neptune – the code-name for the initial phase of the D-Day mission.

The newly-emerged copy was issued to Lieutenant Alexander North Hardy, the skipper of HMS Valena, a minesweeper, which operated off the French coast on June 6th 1944.

Indeed. I would bet that would be appraised a fairly good price on "Antiques Roadshow", like maybe a couple thousand dollars.

This is really neat. I agree, though. This intel should have been destroyed after D-Day. XD
