    here a french aerial picture of Bray Dunes from IGN in 1937 sorry for the bad quality
    in red two french bunkers

    00 IGN PVA 1937 08 27.jpg
    a map from Lannoy Ratel where you can read blockhauses 1914

    00 IGN PVA 1937 08 27 (1).jpg

    and last but not least from SHM (Service historique de la Marine in Paris (Vincennes)
    00 IGN PVA 1937 08 27 (SHM).jpg
    so we can say 100 % sure that there where french bunkers in Bray Dunes on the beach

    I think it's near the front of the hospital after the abandoned Zuydcote Train Station/Platform

    What do you think the number is? 46, 48?

    The Arm of Service serials have a diagonal colour split and Corps bar so they are a Corps RASC unit. They both look like '48' to me. Unfortunately, I can't see a formation sign...it will be 1 Corps or 2 Corps.

    at least one Paris renault bus TN 6 was driven to dunkerque
    i m sure i have another picture of another one in the town of dunkerque but it is not classified (as 100 s photos ) and so not easy to find
    i ll think it is near the Ethel Everard

    I ll think i have pinpoint the small boat Ourthe
    03 Bray Dunes huis (1) boat ourthe.jpg
    04 Bray Dunes jetty nr 4 (4)a.jpg
    and he is almost in front of the house (i labelled it for placing pictures nr 03)
    03 Bray Dunes huis (1).jpg
    so it is Bray Dunes
    what do you think?

    it doesn t seem to intrest many people
    Why ? this is such an exciting topic ?
    I am on other forums active and i there seems to be a bit more activity
    That is the least i can say
    I m also an Axis History Forum , and that moves a lot
    I hope to find some answers here and of course like to open new discussions here
    There are many newly found pictures so i don t think this topic is dead
    Let s give it a try here
    and reopen it ....

    Thanks Dave
    Found it on the WWW but it shows a few jetty s more i believe (pier is jetty in flemish )
    i ll continue
    here is a well known spitfire
    00 a1.jpg
    the only construction we see is above the propellor
    the only strectch of beach long enough is the beach from de Panne to Bray Dunes , and there in the middle is this french blockhaus from 1914 1918
    This is this bunker in 1991 (now much more sanded)
    00 b.jpg
    this is his plan
    00 c.jpg
    and for me this Spitfire was crashed around the X spot
    0A4 google Nord spit.jpg

    PS the other two french bunkers are of a completely different model and as such impossible to think its another bunker there

    hello
    Maybe nobody cares anymore
    but what here is identified as the ethel Everard .... are you sure this is the Ethel Everard ?
    x new barge pos 05 (2).jpg
    x new barge pos 05 (3).jpg
    x new barge pos 05 (4).jpg

    because we see here a different ship... and this is the Ethel Everard
    05 Ethel Everard (5).jpg
    so which barge is the new one ?
    not the Aidie , we see this one every time
    and another question what is the position of the real Ethel Everard barge ?
