D-DAY/LE JOUR J is engraved above the soldiers' helmets. At the bottom, the words REMEMBER/SOUVENIR flank 2019.Did you know…"D-Day" is military shorthand to ensure the dates for field missions remain secret. The letter "H" was also used for "hour", e.g. D-2 would mean two days before D-Day, while H+3 would indicate 3 hours after H-Hour. It is unclear how the invasion of June 6, 1944 became known as "D-Day." Its official name was "Operation Neptune."Innovative tanks were developed to ensure victory on D-Day and throughout the Normandy Campaign. The Sherman DD could swim; the Sherman Crab had chain mail that would spin to detonate mines and shred barbed wire; the Churchill Bobbin lay matting on sand; and the Churchill Fascine filled enemy trenches with brushwood.Supplying the troops after D-Day and throughout the Normandy Campaign was a massive undertaking. Portable docking facilities were built to ensure ships could deliver food, medical supplies, weapons and troops to the European continent. A long underwater pipeline called "Pluto" (Pipe Lines Under The Ocean) was also built to carry fuel from England to Normandy.D-Day in Numbers:80 kilometres of heavily defended Normandy coast was the target invasion zone on D-Day5 German-occupied beaches code-named Sword, Gold (assigned to the British forces), Juno (Canadians), Omaha and Utah (Americans) were captured450+ Canadians parachuted inland before dawn on June 6th to flank the landings 14,000 Canadian troops came ashore as part of the 150,000 Allied assault force10,000 sailors and 110 ships from the Royal Canadian Navy (including destroyers, corvettes, minesweepers, landing ships and landing craft) were among the 7,000 Allied vessels that supported the landings55 Royal Canadian Air Force squadrons earned the Battle Honour Normandy 1944 as part of an Allied Air offensive that included 4,000 bombers plus some 3,700 fighters and fighter-bombers that attacked prior to D-Day, during the landings, and throughout the campaign359 Canadians lost their lives on D-Day, with the total number of Canadian fatalities rising to more than 5,000 by the end of the campaign.
