    From September 1939 it was at Pommery (Polignac) castle. However, it was bombed on the 11th May, so I don't know if they had to move after, and whether they had found somewhere else by the 14th

    Hi Amrit,

    Thanks for your reply and a clue. HQ was in the cellars of 'Chateau Polignac' in Reims town, code named "Panther" in fact.

    Michal,

    Amrit has the answer, it was Chateau Polignac at Reims, until their move to Troyes on May 15, 1940.
