Ich habe diese Karte vor Jahren im Internet gefunden. Leider habe ich den Link nicht gespeichert. In meiner Heimatstadt ( Alpon bei Wesel) gab es offensichtlich eine Tankstelle. Leider habe ich keine weiteren Informationen. Hat jemand zufällig weitere Informationen oder möglicherweise Bilder.

Michelin published the 1947 Map of Normandy as the The Battle for Normandy, June-August 1944 for the 1944-1994 Anniversary.
The map shows the comprehensive detail of the Pluto route from Cherbourg including the later off loading by tankers into a spur of the system at Port en Bessin Huppain.
