Bray Airfield - Seine Inferieure - France

Good evening to all,


I'm looking for information on the Bray airfield (name to be verified) located in the commune of Envermeu in Seine-Inferieure (France) between D22 and D222.
It would have been activated by the French Air Force, referenced by the Luftwaffe (Luftwaffe Airfields 1935-45, German codes: 573 then 269 from 26/07/1942) then used by the RAF or the Americans.
The photo shows the observation post which was located on the water tower at the intersection of the but I don't have a date...


Would you have additional information?


Thank you in advance.


François

François,

Have you looked on this website: https://www.anciens-aerodromes.com/?p=759?

Depends a bit how the users called the airfield, it seems, for no immediate match for Bray and/or Envermeu.

May have had a "Dieppe" name because of proximity?

Regards,
Leendert
