Noyers-Bocage War Memorial

Monument erected in memory of the 151 Typhoon pilots who lost their lives during the Battle of Normandy from May to August. Unveiled in September 1999 by Mr. Jacques Brehin, president of the ASAVN (Association for the memory of the wings of victory in Normandy) and Lieutenant Roy Crane, ex-pilot of Typhoon. Based on the drawing by Raymond Triboulet, produced by Charles Lebaron.
The monument represents three planes stylized by « V » as victory. This stele, in bush-hammered pearl blue granite and black South African granite, is located on land donated by the municipality of Noyers Bocage.
The names of 151 R.A.F. and R.C.A.F are engraved in gold letters on two plaques behind the monument.
