History of this Location: Help Us    

Major civil works began on the base in 1930 to support the defence of the main naval base at Brest, which itself was strategically placed for the Western Approaches and the North Atlantic.  During WWII the base was occupied and in the run up to the Normandy landings was extensively damaged both by Allied action and local sabotage. In 1944, it was decided to rebuild as a main Marine Nationale air base and is today a major rotary wing shore base in support of units of the Atlantic Fleet.
