Interesting. Grandcamp is in the American sector, between Utah and Omaha. I wonder what these chaps were doing there?

According to the IWM this photo is at 'Douet', which I cannot find on the map.

Le Douet de Chouain on the D6 between Bayeux and Tilly sur Seulles is right in the 6DLI area of operation. That tallies with the IWM location information. Not Grandcamp-Maisey, which is in the wrong sector and about 30km away.
