Can't really help you, but some additional info...

Carpiquet is (stil)a small airfield near Cean, and the Scheldt (or Schelde as it's called here) isn,t a town but a river estuary. The towns surrounding this river are Antwerp (Belgium) and Bergen op Zoom, Goes and Middelburg on the isle of Walcheren.
The battles for liberating the estuary so the Antwerp harbour could be used were fierce. The villages called Woensdrecht and Hoogerheide were destroyed completely.
The battles for Walcheren were a long, slow going in muddy, flat terrain.
Jakko Westerbeeke lives there in the neighbourhood and is probarly able to tell you a lot more about it.
PS: Within a few months I will upload a series of pictures of the area, but I'm waiting for the weather to turn bad, so conditions will be similar as in 1944.

Martyn, I've posted my reply to your question in the other group you posted it in, but Rob is right that I live in the area, so if you have some questions about Walcheren and/or the fighting here back in 1944, I can probably give you an answer unless you're asking for too much detail

BTW, Rob: waiting a few months will also get rid of all the tourists who'd make your photos look decidedly unlike 1944

Jakko, is there any chance we can do a tour together, as your knowledge of the area is far more greater thrn mine?
and btw, sorry for misspelling your last name.
