Seventy years ago on September 15, 1944, Company C, 3110th Signal Service Battalion changed its duty station from Cherbourg to Paris. Companies A and B were already in Paris.
Company C sent 4 officers and 32 enlisted men to Paris.
The rest of Company C remained in Cherbourg detached to other Signal Corps units.
Two officers and 64 enlisted men were detached to the recently arrived Company A, 810th Signal Service Battalion.
Company A, 810th Signal Service Battalion operated the telephone and teleprinter sections and the repeater station of the Cherbourg Switching Center.
Company A and the detached men from Company C also constructed a building to house communications equipment along with recreation hall. That work was done during heavy rains.
