One Pill Box.
Bois de Cise does not figure in any of the books but on receiving a photo marked '1524 Landing 9. Bois de Cise: view south-east from beach, looking towards cliff-face (4041/82 S.E./489845) (8.6.45). This was a reconnaissance photo taken a year after D-day. All French beaches were photographed and a report was written up for a future possible re-landing in France in another war, which thankfully has never happened..
