Church in Angoville-au-Plain

A Memorial to Two Heroic Medics in Normandy
On our trip to Normandy, my fiancé and I were lucky enough to visit Angoville au Plain where there’s a 12th century church in which two WW2 medics cared for over 80 wounded Germans and Americans on D-Day. The heroics of the two medics, Bob Wright and Kenneth Moore, are commemorated by the town in the church’s stained glass windows. The wooden benches are still stained with blood from when they were used has hospital beds. This church is off the beaten path of beachside memorials, but well worth the drive, which affords an opportunity to weave through the beautiful Normandy farms and view their infamously high hedgerows.
