You lucky dog. I hope to do this some day and an interested in the replies.
There are a few books on the subject. I got one for Christmas called
"Airfields and Airmen of the Channel Coast" by Mike O'Connor. (Penn & Sword
Books Ltd. ISBN 1-84415-258-8). This is a type of guide book that shows some
then and now photos or superimposes "then" conditions on "now" photos. It also
gives directions on how to get to the locations. This volume goes from
Zeebruggee in the North to Oye, just S of Dunkirk....probably a little too far
North for what you want, but I bet there is another book in this
"Battleground" series that would help.
