In the summer of 1944 my late father Felix A. Cizewski was stationed at Tamerville near Valognes while serving in Company C, 3110th Signal Service Battalion. He may have assisted in the construction of the poles and wires around this facility as Company C was the 3110th’s Open Wire Repair Section with pole and wire construction and maintenance responsibilities.

A new page has been added to the Unofficial Informal Archive of the U.S. Army Signal Corps in Northwest Europe in WWII on the Cizewski, Lovetere, Musbach, & Robinson Family History site.

Georges Dennebouy of Saint-Malo, Bretagne, France is a member of a group which searches the Cotenin Peninsula for American aircraft downed during the 1944 Normandy Campaign. While searching they found the bivouac site at Tamerville of Company C, 3110th Signal Service Battalion, Army Service Forces.

Felix A. Cizewski, my late father, served in Company C stationed at Tamerville from July 26 to August 18, 1944. Company C was probably working on the wires and poles at the major communications center at Valognes (photo above).

Georges Dennebouy and I have been researching what other units were stationed there.

The new page lists the two infantry regiments, two units of a medical battalion, four downed planes, and several Signal Corps units we have identified to date.

Neither the list of units nor the details of their service are complete.

Documenting and sharing the stories of those who served at Tamerville and Valonges honors their service and preserves their memory.

Anyone with more information may share it with Leonard H. Cizewski and it will be added to the site.
