Early, unconfirmed D-Day announcements continued

"Now here’s what Trans Ocean, one of the German news agencies, says: ‘Early this morning landing craft and light warships were observed in the area between the mouth of the Somme* and Eastern coast of Normandy.’ The Trans Ocean broadcast, still unconfirmed,  concludes this way: ‘the long-expected Anglo-American invasion appears to have begun.’

The German broadcast on the long-expected invasion by the Allies were [sic] relayed both to North America and to Germans in the Homeland.  Germans at home were told by DMB's domestic broadcast at dawn in Europe."

*later corrected, without comment, to "Seine."
