The Juno Beach Landing Tables
document started with the work of ww2Talk.com membership, and is
detailed information on the Canadian Armies landing at Juno Beach.
The Tables outline the "load out" of each landing craft
(or group of landing craft) or vessel", including sailing timings,
support craft, bombardment information, convoy information etc.
Information was collected from various sources included the British
Governments Juno Beach Landing Tables (Archive Information) and
War Diaries of Various unit.
ww2Talk's work was expanded by
Barry Miller, who added information including full Unit Names, pertinent
photo's and documents from various web base sources, including Unit
War Diaries. Also adding Unit Commander's who occupied key positions
and units, and Vehicle Tactical Marking information, where available.
His intention was to "hopefully" assist reader's, that
may not have a military background (the geology researcher), understand
As the Landing Tables were documents
produced for the "Planning" of the D-Day Operations by Allied Troops,
it must be remembered that the "Actual Plan and loading of landing
craft" may have differed from the "Planning" Landing Tables. Where
it was possible, by the authors, to identify the "actual" vessel
loads, this record was modified to reflect those changes.
If information is available to
confirm Landing Craft or Vessel loads or other Operational details,
please feel free to contact this website to have the information
added or modified. Please quote or attach the "source" for any information.
