There is a very useful tool online for decoding Second World War grid references. You just have to be aware of the general area to determine which map sheet prefix to use. There are maps on the site that show the map sheet references for the different grid systems ( choose the grid type from the dropdown and use the "(show the corresponding grid)" link).

Most of the locations in question would use the Nord de Guerre grid system.
