AUX PILOTES DE TYPHOON MORTS COURS DE LA BATAILLE NORMANDIE

Situated on the road to Falaise, Noyers Bocage is the site of a monument to Typhoon aircraft pilots. Typhoon aircraft were fighter and bomber planes used in low level flight during the Normandy Campaign. They were highly effective. Many times during the campaign they were cheered by Canadians as they flew overhead. They provided support during the taking of Carpiquet village and airfield, the fighting for Verrières Ridge, and during many other battles.
