NOTES: The target is new construction spreading over fields and connected with the railway sidings at Renescure. This activity can be compared with that seen at St.Martin L'Hortier and Valognes. The illustration shows the target slightly oblique. The site is rail served. A number of rectangular buildings in various stages of construction are dispersed in the area, and there are large dumps of stores. In all, some six flak positions protect the area though they are not all seen on this photograph.
