NOTES: A Bois Carre type site situated in a very dense irregular shaped wood on the E side of the Fruges/St. Pol-sur Ternoise main road. Several of the usual buildings are already put up and a ski foundation, towards the eastern side is just visible. The most noticeable thing about the target, however, are the number of tracks which run into the wood on the N side, and at the moment, the quantity of stores on the same side, the rest of the activity being completely obscured by the trees.
