Unlikely an Allied group was named this

More likely an operation name, or a radio code for the group

More than likely, it is a fact.

GC 1/5 "Champagne" was a Squadron of Jabo supporting the 1st French Army in the last months of the war, flying P-47. Given that they flew from Amberieu and were attacking targets in Germany,, it is possible that they made this attack on Bregenz.
