6 June 1944
During the Second World War, on the 6th of June 1944, the Allies began their liberation of Western Europe by invading German-occupied France at Normandy under the code name Operation OVERLORD. At dawn, the 14,000 men of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division, supported by the 2nd Armoured Brigade landed on their beach, code named JUNO; and by the end of the day had made the farthest gains inland. The Normandy invasion paved the way for a complete Allied Victory culminating in Germany's unconditional surrender on 8 May, 1945 - VE-Day.
1. Metal License Plate Artwork (6”x12”)
(signed on the back by the artist Silvia Pecota)
2. Watercolour print (6”x12”)
3. Black Metal Frame
4. Backer support + 4 black screws
5. Clear protective shield
6. Certificate of Authenticity
Also included is a print of the same dimensions as the license plate (6"x12"). It is printed on watercolour paper using archival inks. This can also be framed using a similar metal frame and it is for internal display only, as in a garage, rec room or "man cave".
The watercolour print can be an exact copy of the license plate ordered or an alternate selection can be made. Please specify which image you would prefer for the watercolour print.
As the license plate may be exposed to the elements, the plastic shield (which is included in the set), should be used for extra protection.
If using a license plate frame for the watercolour print: mark the 4 holes and use a hole puncher to make the holes for the screws.
When assembling to hang the license plate on a wall, make sure the side that is marked “BACK” (on the black backer support) faces out. This offers support for hanging onto a screw or nail on a wall.
