The Germans planned four reception
sites where the V1 would arrive by train. 1008 Bricquebec, 1009 Valognes,
1028 Montebourg & 1029 St Jacques de Nehou.
The latter two were planned but no construction or earth works can be
Although the two sites are quite close to each other, they are served
by different rail routes. This may have been deliberate so that
continuity of supply might have been maintained if either route was cut
by Allied bombing. The route to Valognes was by the main line from Caen
and Bricquebec the route came by St Lo and Le Mans. The latter route was
more difficult and meant a longer flight for the Allies.
