Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a rare hard to find March, 1944 dated "Zones of France", Scale 1:2.000.000, silk map. On D-Day, this map was mainly worn by US airborne troops around their neck.

This map, called Zones of France in reference to the division of France after the Armistice, is mainly issued to SOE agents, Jedburgh teams, Operation Groups of the OSS and American and British paratroopers involved behind enemy lines during the liberation of the territory.

Also included is a named kit bag to COLONEL ABRAHAM also with insulated gloves.
