Gallery and links to the articles in two Normandy newspapers about the May 31, 2014 memorial in Tamerville. The above photo appeared in both.

The coverage focused on the downed fliers but also alluded to the unit of my late father, Felix A. Cizewski, the 3110th Signal Service Battalion and similar units that served in the Tamerville and Valognes area during the liberation of Normandy:
