    Default 4SQDN - May1940 - Flanders/Belgium - Ninove/Aspelaere

    Hello

    For some research about 2 war graves in Outer/Ninove (Belgium), i'm looking for a map that RAF used in the 1940's.

    4Sqdn had an improvised airfield in the region of Aspelaere (Ninove), and there was a lost Lysander on the 18th may 1940 in Outer.

    About both subjects, I can't find any detailled info.

    Has somebody got some tips for the search.

    Thanks

    Peter from Ninove/Belgium
