How He Went To War - Dad's journey in greater detail.

The yellow dots show the likely withdrawal route from Le Havre.  At Honfleur it's possible that he went to Pont l'Evêque via the N179 and then to Caen on the N815: his diary doesn't make the route clear at this point.  The coastal route I've shown seems to be the most direct route, but could have been exposed to attack from Jerry planes coming in off the sea.
