Excellent wartime Ordnance Survey map based on the Fourth Edition Quarter-Inch to One Mile. The legend at the top is " Not To Be Published - Military Edition - War Revision 1940" (this is first one; there was a second) and the legend in the bottom left corner "G.S., G.S., No. 3957" (a reference to the Geographical Section, General Staff). The map is overprinted in purple ink with grid lines and references and instructions on how to give a grid reference, while the borders show the original latitude and longitude scales. The map is also overprinted in red with the locations and names of airfields with a red legend referring to Land Aerodromes, Landing Grounds, Water Aerodromes, Seaplane Mooring Areas and Airship Bases and the fact that air information is correct to 20.11.39.The sheet is cloth backed and in very clean condition and folds to approximately foolscap size. It has clearly seen very little use. Bookseller Inventory #
