Operation Neptune - BAND BEACH and Op FROG & DEER

Post by Temujin » Sun Jun 06, 2021 7:41 pm

Most do not know, including me until I could confirm the information…….there were actually SIX (6) Beaches for Operation Neptune/Overlord.

BAND beach, was located to the left of SWORD beach (looking at the Beaches from the sea).

BAND beach had TWO Commando operations planned, Operation’s FROG and Operation DEER

Both of these operations were called of at 2030 hour on D Day, as it was determined they were not needed, and the Commando’s allotted were landed on Juno Beach on D+1

Below is documentation showing “BAND” area/beach in US Op Neptune information
