Pegasus Bound

Halifax V and Airspeed Horsa

Operation Tonga was the first movement of troops into occupied France on D-day, and was achieved by Halifax tugs towing Horsa gliders with troops to capture the bridges over the Caen Canal and the River Orne. The operation was launched at 11.00 pm on 5 th June 1944, so was carried out in darkness, but I have used a bit of licence to give some light on the subject.

The Caen Canal bridge at Benouville was renamed Pegasus Bridge after the mythical winged horse featured on the formation sign of British Airborne Forces
