Angoville au Plain

Angoville au Plain is situated just above Drop Zone D (the hottest drop zone on D Day).The church in the village square was used as an aid station set up by Robert Wright and Kenneth Moore who treated over 80 wounded paratroopers, from both American and German forces.

Today Angoville au Plain is remembered and not forgotten by the local people who dedicated a stain glass window in the church to the memory of 501st regiment and there is also a memorial in the village to the Medics – Moore and Wright.
