    Hello all,

    Has anyone ever happened across a reference to a:

    "205 Reception Camp near Pierre Artus"
    circa June/July 1944. Normandy. France.

    La Pierre Artus itself is just to the north east of Brazenville in Normandy:
    Bazenville, Normandy (B2)

    A number of times, my grandfather mentions moving between various places like the FDS (Forward Delivery Squadron), 30 Div HQ. La Noc / or La Noe. and a "205 Reception Camp near Pierre Artus"

    All the best,

    Rm.

    This is the sketch map of the original intended concentration areas in Normandy for the 8th Armoured Brigade overlaid over the map of the area it covers...

    In the event this plan as sketched did not transpire.

    Pierre Artus, itself, can be seen a little to the north east of Bazenville/Brazenville...
