info need re: military camps SE of Verdun  bj omanson

Seeking information about several military camps in use by the AEF,
including the Marine Brigade, southeast of Verdun in the Spring of 1918.
Would like to know exact location, size, photos, closest village, etc. Any
info at all appreciated.

--- Camp Nivolette. Believe this was near Rupt-en-Woevre. On an old trench
map I find the name "Nivolette" just north of Rupt-en-Woevre, but it seems
to designate a general area rather than a precise location, perhaps the name
of a wood.

--- Camp Savoyard.

--- Camp Joffre. Somewhere along the Tranchee de Calonne, north of Ft.
Rozellier, in the Moulainville Sector.

--- Camp Massa. Somewhere along the Tranchee de Calonne.
