About This Project
Valognes, a two-thousand-year-old Gallic town located on Route Nationale 13 in the Cotentin Peninsula.
Its ancient name was Alauna.
After far too heavy Allied bombing on June 6, 7, and 8, 1944, the Americans passed through Valognes on June 20, 1944 from Montebourg toward Cherbourg and found the town virtually deserted.
Not much was left of this beautiful (art historical) town, also called “Petit Versailles Normand”….
The panneau is an exact reproduction of the original, which the GIs found in 1944.
Color and font are identical to the example we took from a film shot on June 21, 1944!
This panneau comes with a Vinsign certificate, a unique production number and a deluxe postcard with photo and description of the original.
