JUNO BEACH - D-DAY
At the beginning of the Battle of Normandy, the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division, landed on Calvados coast. Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer, one of five Canadian landing sites, was located at the eastern end of Canada's assigned landing sector of Juno Beach. On D-Day, the 8th Canadian Infantry (Assault) Brigade (Group) stormed the beach, landing The North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment, the 10th Armoured Regiment (The Fort Garry Horse). The Canadians were met by about 100 defenders who garrisoned the town's fortified 'Resistance Nest'. The Germans were largely unaffected by the preparatory barrage, as such they were able to put up heavy resistance at the beach and in the town, for most of the day, as the Canadians pushed inland.
Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer must be captured and held against any counter-attacks.
The 10th Armored Regiment tanks will disembark from their LST directly on the beach at Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer and breach the minefield and steel beam obstacles. The amphibious DD tanks of the 10th Armored and the 8th Canadian Infantry, disembarking from their landing craft, will make their way through the cleared lanes and capture Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer.
