There was a Motorised Cavalry Organisation Center, the COMAM Centre d'Organisation de Motocyclistes et d'Automitrailleuses

installed at the "autodrome" of Linas near Monthléry

hello

Janvry yes is the Automobile ORganisation Center - C.OR.A n°1 -

Montargis is the garrison of the Engineers Depot 38 (Signals) with training companies like any others War Depots

camp du Larzac is only the traditional military camp of the 16e Region, nothing specifically medical nor specialized training center for any Arms other than just a military camp receiving passing units or for manoeuvres, the medical personnel from this area is rather linked with the Military Nurses Depot 16e SIM of Lunel

hello

it is because the Signals were still a branch part of the Engineers Arm until 1942 in the French Army
but the 8e 18e 28e 38e "Engineers" Regiments, then their Depots in 1939-1940 as the 38 of Montargis were actually specialized (sappers-)telegraphers Signals units, not sappers-miners

Hi, Loic, thank so much for your reply.

I see 236e DLI also had some unit from different area : like artillery from Chateaudun, Transport from Dourdan and Signal from Versailles, did these three area also have school or organization centre, may you tell me ? thank

hello

Versailles is a big garrison and among others the Signals' historic craddle with the 8th Regiment then Engineers [Signals branch] Depot n°8
Châteaudun is a garrison and an Anti-Aircraft Artillery Organisation Center
Dourdan is one of the numerous places allocated to receive men and vehicles for the C.OR.A 1 as Janvry above
