Note on units:
The unit is the first photo above is not Company C, 3110th Signal Service Battalion, my late father’s unit. Company C was the battalion’s Open Wire Repair Section. Their primary responsibility would have been constructing poles and wires outside of the Château de Chiffrevast. Company C was in Tamerville and Valognes from July 26 to August 18 when they were deployed to Cherbourg.
The personnel could be from Company A or B of the 3110th. A and B were in Tamerville and Valognes from August 24 to September 5 when they were deployed to Paris.
