Default Juno Beach Landing Tables

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 these details.

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.

To access the tables, and download copies, please go to the following link:

Wow, fantastic work!

I am just reading the little book "Juno Beach: 3rd Canadian and 79th Armoured Division" by Tim Saunders.
