Juno Stories Storymaps

On this page, access all storymaps from our Juno Stories project. Each storymap is viewable within this collection, but also independently in each section of the project (D-Day, Battle of Normandy, Serve Supply and Support, and D-Day Dodgers).

Storymap: D-Day Dodgers

D-Day Dodgers refers to Canadians who "dodged" D-Day in 1944, not by refusing to fight or by missing the call, but rather by fighting in Italy at the same time. This section shows the story of Tom Gilday, who was one such soldier.
