Top secret maps and documents belonging to a hero medic who served on D-Day have been unearthed 75 years later.<br />
<br />
Douglas Protheroe helped set up a field hospital at the cafe next to Pegasus Bridge in Normandy in the aftermath of the famous British assault there just after midnight on June 6, 1944.<br />
<br />
The team of medics removed wounded men from the bridge over the Caen Canal, coming under enemy fire while doing so.<br />
<br />
The maps showing Protheroe's drop zone are being sold by Bosley's Auctioneers.
