Both the RAF and US Army Air Forces made good use of airfields in southern England leading up to and throughout the D-Day period in 1944. Some of the south’s ‘strips’ were already built and well established, but others were constructed specifically for operations during that time and, being temporary in nature, disappeared soon afterwards.
