Hello

This must be what was erected at the beginning of the V1 campaign in 1943 - so the 96 launching sites was what were operative at the beginning, and that adds up what the allies had in their list as well.

But there was a lot more sites.

Kurt

Hi Kurt

Nice org chart - is that from your own research or a publication? - I ask because the '4 bunkers' - as well all know - were not 100% operational - and might that suggest that the 96 rampes were also never 100% operational? Complex subject!

Okay, I will get the ball rolling. I have the Dufour/Dore book (L'Enfer des V1 en Seine-Maritime). In it, it lists the Rampes Lourdes (Heavy Site) of:

Saint Leger aux Bois: Mesnil-Allard

The very short description states it is on the secondary road to Saint Leger Fourcarmont, in the farm of Camille Leroy.

Looking on Google Earth https://www.google.com/maps/@49.84225,1 ... a=!3m1!1e3 , this seems to be the likely location...?

Hello David

Nice list of V1 sites, but there one can see how far from actual site the NOBALL grid references were.

I have visited several of these sites, and you can see on the google site list many of them ends up on a empty field - but the correct location near by contains a lot of bunkers and remains of the actual site.

We will have to look closer in the nearby area of these locations to find the actual sites.

And Pete - this is one method to find the actual site, but one has to be "lucky" to find it, and then cross reference it with the allied / French and original German names.

Regards
Kurt

So how do we move forward...?

Perhaps I should type up the French names of the sites I know of, and maybe Kurt (and others) can modify the list by stating what it was called by the Germans?

I think I will also dig out this Crossbow file at Kew http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.u ... /r/C302880

So true Kurt,

With some of the ones I've visited I've put the GPS coodinates as well as the NoBall ones in the 'info boxes' on the map and yes, many are several hundred m or more out. (A thought - there are also different ways of defining co-ords and allowing for magnetic north drift - which just complicates matters. Many of the NoBall co-ords see too far West ... odd & interesting.)

BOIS CARRE is about spot on for the launch ramp, although Google maps shows nothing... MAISON PONTHIEU on the other hand, clearly shows three ski storage depots on Google maps (with sat overlay)

AGENVILLERS is also visible via Google and the NoBall coords are again to the West of the site - the main site is again hidden in the wood and the Skis are demolished rubble....

Let's keep at it!

I will look into producing cross reference list between allied, French and German locations / names / numbers etc. It will take a while though :-)

Kurt

Work of a lifetime I think ;}

I for one would be very interested in any & all of the Kew papers you hold, so yes, if you could share them in Dropbox that would be brilliant!

Many thanks in anticipation.

I'm back to Northern France early in July - and will keep exploring...

best wishes

David

I too would love to see these documents. Thank you!

I found this information, on a website, from a book written by Jean-Pierre Ducellier, - La guerre aérienne dans le nord de la France: 24 juin 1944. It gives German numbers to places. Did you know these, Kurt...?

Moyenneville position 662
Béhen position 666
Bois Coquerelle 667
Longuemort position 668
Marquenneville position 669
Bouillancourt en Séry position 670
Stockage
Oisemont Neuville position 1005
Inval Boiron position 1012
Beaulieu Ferme position 671
Campneuseville position 672
Le Mesnil Allard position 673
Preuseville position 674
Puchervin position 675
Hambures position 676
Bailly en Campagne position 677
St Pierre des Jonquières position 678

Also, in the National Archives catalogue, I found these Crossbow Location documents (I will order them for next week):

Hello

Only these:

Béhen position 666

Stockage, Oisemont Neuville position 1005

The others I did not have registered in my PC files (I only register sites that I have some documentation on, or pictures, or been there my self).

I will add them to my list though.

Do you have a link to the webpage where you found them?
