Army of the Coasts of Cherbourg
Formed by splitting the Army of the Coasts in April 1793, it was put under the command of Georges Félix de Wimpffen and charged with defending the coasts of Manche against British invasion, and fighting against the federalist revolt in Normandy and Caen. However, Wimpffen went over to the Girondists and so was removed from this post and replaced after his final fall on 2 June that year by Charles Guillaume Sepher. In 1794 it was merged with the Army of the Coasts of Brest, under Lazare Hoche then from May to November 1795 under Jean-Baptiste Annibal Aubert du Bayet.
