36 American Liberators Memorial

<< Back to Pont-Scorff


On the left and right flanking the large monument.


Two trapezoidal brown tablets inscribed with 36 names, eighteen on each tablet, followed by their rank, and their age (written in French) in engraved and white lettering. These 36 soldiers were killed between August 7 and 9 of 1944 after the liberation of Pont-Scorff. The memorial was dedicated in August 2022 in a ceremony joined by the family and friends of the soldiers, the residents of Pont-Scorff, and the sponsors of the project.


On August 7, 1944, after liberating Pont-Scorff, soldiers of the 4th American Armored Division came under fire from German artillery. The same day, the German artillery of Moustoir-Flamm bombarded the field between Bivière and Ty Nenez, resulting in 20 American soldiers killed and 85 wounded, destroying 5 half-tracks, 6 jeeps, 2 trucks, and 2 armored cars, and damaging a score of other vehicles. The following days' fighting brought the number of dead to 36.
