I am researching American forces stationed in Rostrevor, Warrenpoint and South Down in 1944 prior to the invasion of France with a view to staging a 75th anniversary commemoration. Extraordinarily, US troops were stationed in Rostrevor House, built by the widow of Major General Ross whose army captured Washington in 1814, burning the White House and Capitol. (I recently co-authored a book on this topic). All info, pointers welcome about US troops stationed in this area during WWII. Also keen to locate sites of spent ammunition to try and pick up artefacts for use in a Men's Shed project.
