    Was your Grandfather There ???? 


    During World War II prior to the D DAy landings a small group of American troops was stationed at a small English market town called Tetbury.

             654th Topographical Engineering Battalion. 


    I have two areas I am researching historically, the first being this battalions creation of a 3D model of Omaha Beach, what happened to the model after it was returned to the States, last known location was the Smithsonian.


    Two, General Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander, was housed in Chavenage House near Tetbury, Why ?  Was it part of the D Day landing plans ? 

      Any information, especially papers or pictures from the time would be greatfully received.s
