    Does anyone have the location and numbers of the Reception and Reinforcement camps in France during the 1939-40 campaign. I have a rather tantalising reference to one at or near Bollezeele under the command of a Lieutenant Colonel Cobbet who was deployed to Usherforce in May 1940. I can't find any reference to him or the reinforcement/Reception camp he commanded. I suspect he was in command of the 23 Division reinforcement Camp as he was ordered to take up a position astride the St Omer-Bergues road near Bollezeele on 24 May 1940. Does any of this ring a bell with anyone - even slightly?
