Château de Chiffrevast

Château de Chiffrevast near Tamerville & Valognes, Normandy.
The Château de Chiffrevast was used as a communications
facility by the Germans. After liberation in 1944 the Americans resumed
using it for communications.

Georges Dennebouy, Remi Agnes, Claude Letellier, and Mickael Simon  search the Cotenin Peninsula for American aircraft downed during the 1944 Normandy Campaign.

They have also been working with the mayor and town council of Tamerville in Manche, Normandy, France to commemorate the Americans who served in and around Tamerville during WWII.

They reported that the mayor and town council of Tamerville have just decided to build a memorial in honor of the U.S. soldiers who served in and around Tamerville and the U.S. airmen who came down near Tamerville.

The memorial is planned for completion in time for the 70th anniversary of D-Day in June, 2014.

Units that served in and around Tamerville include Army air force crews, paratroopers, infantry, medical, and Signal Corps units.

Among the Signal Corps units were Company C, 3110th Signal Service Battalion in which my late father, Felix A. Cizewski, was serving.

Research continues to identify U.S. Army units that served in and around Tamerville. Anyone with additional information are urged to share it with Leonard H. Cizewski.
