Royal Canadian Air Force Plaque Saint-Vigor-le-Grand fr

Fixed outside the Petit Magny manor in Saint-Vigor-le-Grand, this plaque remembers the members of the 430th Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force who were stationed within its walls from June 6-7, 1944.

Airfield B8 was built next to the manor, from which fighters from Squadrons 400, 414 and 430 took off. Richard Rohmer from Squadron 430 was the pilot who spotted Feldmarshall Erwin Rommel's vehicle during a flight mission.
