Bourth (France) 2./AA.12 Hitlerjugend-Div.

Post by jan willem stokkers » 19 Aug 2022 13:42

I am looking for a location in Bourth (France) probably some kind of castle where the vehicles of 2.Kp.AA.12 "HJ" were housed. They must have been under the trees in a kind of park-like area of this castle. According to reports, it should have been about 300 to 400 metres from the centre of Bourth. Any info is welcome. Maybe someone here knows how the area around Bourth must have looked like in spring 1944.

Was it Ardenne Abbey?

Ardenne Abbey has nothing to do with the AA.12! I'am talking about Bourth and not Caen area.
