It's NW of Locon, and Bois de Pacaut can be found around GPS location: 50°35.460'N, 2°37.284'E.

Le Cornet Malo is around location: 50°35.698'N, 2°37.084'E

Air Ace Mick Mannock was shot down not far from here in 1918.

The area that you are interested in is at the junction of four map sheets these being 36ASE1 StVenant, 36ASE2 Lestrem, 36ASE3 Gonnehem and 36ASE4 Locon. I have join a section of the locations you are interested in.
