A humble shepherd's hut which was lived in by paratroopers training ahead of D-Day and is covered in their graffiti has emerged for sale for £15,000.
It was makeshift accommodation for the 1st and 2nd Battalions of the US army's 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, part of the 101st Airborne Division.
They played a key role in the Normandy invasion on June 6, 1944, and were also involved in the ill-fated Operation Market Garden three months later.
The cosy wood and corrugated iron hut, which is 9ft high, 12ft long and 8ft wide, was found in the village of Aldbourne, Wilts, where the 506th Parachute Infantry Division did their training from September 1943.
It has various inscriptions including soldiers' names, service numbers and a checklist of tasks. The hut is being sold with auctioneers Duke's, of Dorchester, Dorset.
