In detailThe “Motion sickness preventive” are tablets distributed to the troops who were about to be landed or to be dropped in Normandy as part of Operation Overlord. They are packed in six units in a black or white “Motion Sickness Pills” paper and stored in a small cardboard box. These pills were meant to allow soldiers to combat the undesirable effects of seasickness or air sickness. However, many GI’s will report that if they were sick during the ride, it was surely because of these pills.
