Can anyone please help me i.d this airfield, I assume it is not a home service airfield due to the presence of trenches and what appears to be bomb craters.

I have a couple of other photos but at slightly different angles if this will help.

Many thanks.

Can anyone also please tell me what are the white triangular shaped objects near the aircraft, I know this is probably completely wrong, but are they some sort of cover for maintainance.

Just bringing this to the top again.

Really keen to find out what the white triangular shapes are.

Can anyone also please tell me what type of planes are on the ground ?

Thanks.

Could they be some kind of mobile aircraft cover for the air crew, maybe hooked over the tail and wings - looking at the shadows their about the same heigth as the planes

I think that the triangular structures are small tent hangars, but I'm happy to concede that I might be wrong. Back in the old days, before I purchased an much improved computer, I could have enlarged the images of the aeroplanes and had a go at identifying the type(s). Alas, now I can't. Can you do so?

Cheers

The triangular structures look like the German type canvas hangars

Thanks to you all for your replies.

Here is a closer view, unfortunately this is the best I can get it.

I have spent some time looking at this under a magnifying glass and I'm sure I can see roundalls on the wings of some of the aircraft.
