Information

Wn15 & Wn15a St-Aubin-d'Arquenay.

Details

Wn15 d'Arquenay was probably just a fall back position or a check point and Wn15a was the site of a sanitätsstand which may have been casualty evacuation centre, or a small hospital in one of the large houses in the village.
Wn15a looks as though it had a wire defence around its north side, probably wire and mines and in the middle is a large house which may have held a hospital.

German fire control plan..

Details

This is from a captured German fire plan plan for the D-Day areas so a defending unit can call down artillery fire on certain areas. I think the numbered red dots are individual areas, cross roads or woodland which would be important to an invading force.
