Old ICAO Location designators

Has anyone got copies of old UK ICAO 4-letter designators for the UK?
Would be interested to receive any scanned info from 50's to 70's.

Currently looking for the EG.. for Catterick.

Many thanks in advance

Should someone come across old ICAO IDs I am interested what the airport IDs of former East Germany (DDR) were.

East Germany used the series ET--
I remember the code that was used up to the middle fifties
UK = GA--
Heathrow was GALA Southend GAHC Jersey GAJY
Holland PA-- Amsterdam PAAM Rotterdam PARD
Belgium ON-- Brussels ONBR Ostend ONOS
France FF-- Calais was FFMK Le Touquet FFLT

worked at EGMC then and these were the most commonly used for Channel airways and Channel Air Bridge flight plans
I cant remember many others, anybody else remember???

I probably have got an old book (well, 70s) in the loft, but where . . . .

I don't remember the pre EG-- series but can remember that Luton use to be EGLN, Elstree EGLE and Duxford EGVD (true!) Sorry, don't remember one for Catterick.
