Aircraft over Dunkirk may 10- June

I am doing a project and need to get units, identification call letters and paint schemes for aircraft operating over or near Dunkirk during the evacuation. We plan to build a full size section of the front half of a He-111 for our project and a couple of others. A Spitfire, Hurricane and Bf-109E. I've been looking and am fairly sure of the paint for the Aircraft, they seem to be standard for the period. Units and individual markings are needed. Any help would be appreciated and credit give with display.
I found the units for the Spitfire and Hurricane but would still like varification. Also was the He-111 units KG-4 and KG-27? I think I have info. For an He-111. 3/KG-27 10 May 1940. 1G+DL crew Uffz. Otto Wehmieier (Pilot).
In an earlier post on this site was a JU-88A-1 L1 or I+AP 5/LG1 crash in Belgium at Nieuwport beach May 29,1940.
I have about 800+ original photos of crashed or damaged aircraft from 1910 till Gulf war most are WW-11. So, if I can help anyone let me know.

Aircraft over Dunkirk 1940 info needed

I am doing a project that is building cockpit sections for aircraft operating over or near Dunkirk during the evacuation. We will also be building large models.
The paint schemes look to be standard for the period but need confirmation on units and call letters and letter colors.
I've been doing some looking around and have some information.
Confirmation or correction is needed and any help will be appreciated.
I found info. On an HE-111 1G+DL of 3/KG-27 10 May 1940 that may have operated over Dunkirk.
In a post I saw on this site was info. For a JU-88 5/LG1 that operated over or near Dunkirk that crashed in Belgium at Nieuwport beach Ostende May 29, 1940.
Also Bf-110C 11/JG-76 was one.
Bf-109E JG-26
Confirmation and more help on this will be appreciated.
I have over 800 original photos of aircraft crashes, wrecks and damaged planes from 1910 till the gulf war most being WW-11 so if I can help anyone let me know. Thanks

The evacuation was for the period 26 May-4 June so if you want to have a look at the Battle of France Then & Now pages 367-421 you will find a number of suitable candidates

This old forum thread may be of interest, especially the Intelligence Summary page.
