Up for offer is an original Zones of France map as issued to paratroopers and aircrews for the invasion of Normandy. The map is printed on silk, so that it could be taken out without making noise. Included with the map are the rubber pouch that contained the map and escape kit. It is marked on the front MAPS ONLY. The small compass and escape saw are also included in the sale, the saw has the original cardboard holder. The map shows honest use but still a solid map, the compass still moves and the hacksaw is in exellent shape. The rubber case is soft and pliable.. A must for any Airborne or D-Day collector, the saw and pouch are very hard to find on the loose.
