I got into this discussion a little late as I was away, so, in case you didn't check back to the earlier discussion, here is my two cents worth:

T-7360 Gnu III Tavronitis riverbed
T-7398 "Greenloaning" Maleme airfield
T-7411 "Gnat IV" Perivolia/Rethymnon
T-6924 "Gnome III" Rethymnon airfield
T-7402 Heraklion airfield

The last number on "Gnu III" was hard to read on the photo I have of it but the second to last looks like 6 to me. Plus there is T-18896 which no one has any ideas on. Let me know your thoughts on this. Any other information on them would be welcome.

But ISO Playfair in the Official history puts two in the Maleme-Galatas sector, five at Heraklion, and two at Retimo. I think this was at 20th May.
