Title

Ouistreham and Port de L'Orne

Description

Two reconnaissance photographs of the area to the south and east of Ouistreham and Port de L'Orne. The two photographs overlap.
#1 which is marked "Neg No 38858" shows the Ouistreham Estuary at the top with the Canal de Caen a la Mer running top to bottom with the river Orne running parallel to its right. The River Orne bridge is towards the bottom right. The adjacent Pegasus Bridge section is just off the edge of this photograph but the Village of Benouville is visible on the bottom left. Two areas of interest have been marked in white and a capital "D" is printed over the estuary.
#2 is marked "Neg No 38855" and is slightly east of #1. It also has areas marked with a white border. One is a area of fields to the bottom marked "A" and a circle in the top right which is Merville Battery.
