British Navy Beach Master & Captain Colin Maud
Captain Colin Douglas Maud was a Royal Navy officer who during the Second World War commanded the destroyers Somali and Icarus and acted as beach master of Juno beach at the D-day landings. With a heavy black beard, he “possessed the outward appearance of a latter-day buccaneer and was endowed with exceptional boldness and tenacity to go with it”. His blackthorn stick and dog Winnie provided an image when portrayed by Kenneth More in the film The Longest Day. He was described as “one of the most popular officers in the British Navy”.ENGLISH:
