Field near Valognes where U.S. Army artifacts have been found. Possible site of bivouac of Signal Corps units.

From July 26 to August 18, 1944, Company C, 3110th Signal Service Battalion, including my late father, Felix A. Cizewski, was stationed near Tamerville near Valognes, France. Valognes is in Normandy northwest of Utah Beach and south of Cherbourg.

Georges Dennebouy who lives near Valognes, Normandy, France, researches Allied aircraft shot down by the Germans during WWII. Three planes went down near Valognes.

While researching in this field, Georges and two friends found numerous small artifacts including spoons, shaving cream tubes, a metal stake, and heavy communications cable.

Valognes was a major communications center for the U.S. Army and many Signal Corps units were stationed there including my late father’s unit.

Georges believes this to be the site where Signal Corps units were bivouacked including Company C, 3110th Signal Service Battalion.

    Hello ,I live near Valognes in Normandie (France ) .

    With 2 other friends ,we do researchs about planes shoot down by the german during WWII .

    Last week ,I went to Tamervile ,sa 3 planes downed in this village near Valognes .

    As we did researchs in the fields ,we found numerous small parts in the ground .In one of the fields ,it was not parts of planes but spoons ,shaving pasta tube etc……So we thought it was a field where was a bivouack of US soldiers .

    On internet I did researchs and I found your father’sname and informations about the 3110th SSB co.C of your father .He was in Tamerville between July 25th until August 18th.So I would be very interested with some more informations about this bivouack

    .As 3 planes downed in Tamerville ( 1 B17 ,1 A20,1 P51) ,and as we know this bivouack here ,the Mayor of Tamerville would be very pleased to do something in memory of soldiers who stay ,and died in her village .

    Best Regards ,Georges Dennebouy.
