D DAY - THE INVASION OF EUROPE
Seventy -five years ago, in the early morning of June 6, 1944, inland from the Normandy beachhead, in France, pathfinders from parachute infantry regiments of the 82nd Airborne Division, preceded by the 101st, jumped from C-47 Skytrain transports into the dead of night. Their job was to mark landing zones for the main contingent, of paratroops that followed. It would be accomplished with lanterns and Eureka ground-based transponders; a cumbersome device that communicated with the Rebecca airborne transceiver in aircraft above. One of the massive transponders was fielded by an Oswego, New York native. Paul Hellard, was one of the few 504th Parachute Infantry Division's pathfinders to land on French soil that morning.
This was Mission Boston of Operation Overlord - D-DAY - the beginning of the liberation of Europe.
Pictured: Paul's Parachute Jumper Coat worn, by him, during the D-DAY invasion (the torn pocket flap was ripped off during his landing); M-1-C Paratrooper Helmet; M3 Trench Knife and M1A1 Paratrooper Carbine.
