Here are the photos of the different phases of reconstruction of the firing station of the site V1 Nr161 of Guerville – Pole of Montauban.
Rebuilt identically by volunteers, in the framework and respect of a scientific approach, with German agglos found at other V1 sites, conifer trunks and tarpaulin, under the «masterpiece» Mr. Yannick DELEFOSSE from the Flanders-Artois Air Association.
This with the approval of the Aumale-Blangy sur Bresle Interregional Community of Municipalities as part of its «historical hiking route V1».
All we have to do now is let the time for skating... The generator building and the rinsing shop will also be good restoration bases. Soon may be.
A location map to better identify sites to visit !
It is not by chance that the Luftwaffe, the German Air Force, has retained this area between the valleys of Bresle and Yères for its launch bases. The deep Eu Forest, the railway line and the many forest roads offered all the favourable conditions for this construction site … but that for us … are not necessarily obvious to find!
With this new map, find and discover, according to your rhythm, the remains of 19 V1 launch sites built in our territory as well as places full of history.

After several months of work, the conception of the replica of a flying bomb V1 launching catapult was made and placed on the Poteau de Montauban V1 base located in the commune of Guerville.
