This specific piece of WWII memorabilia — called an Escape & Evasion map — belonged to my paratrooper grandfather, Chet Graham, who was an Army Captain at the time. He was assigned as the Commanding Officer of Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion of the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment.
A second silk paratrooper’s map, including France, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium, is also shown below.
