"X südl. Bois du Homme Dep. Calvados/Normandie". Solve for X. Sorry, bad math joke. I appreciate any help on identifying this Norman town.
This is a map of the area (though it is a modern map) south of the Bois du Homme (the green band from center top diagonally southeast centered on Bremoy. I could find no town that comes close to what is in the above card - usually if an inscription is unclear I can suss it out by looking at maps but not with this one. Any help would be much appreciated. Also, it appears that the wood has been renamed 'Bois de Brimbois" Any help is greatly appreciated.
PS: many towns in Normandy have either been renamed or combined with larger towns or cities, which may account for why I can't find it on any modern maps.

You're not looking for a village name.
The X reads Bachgrund, which you can translate with brook/creek ground.
So you have to concentrate on those little creeks, it's
either the Ruisseau du Fordouit or the Le Courbencon.
