Street Maps England from WWII 1938- German adapted.
« on: Monday 03 May 21 20:17 BST (UK) »
(Apologies if you have already read this, it was suggested that I move it to a broader forum)


A while ago, whilst I was sourcing early 20th century maps of Sheffield on commercial online sites, I came across German military maps of Sheffield made in 1938-. They were based on OS, but printed with additional military information marking sites of strategic interest.
I  didn't have more than a passing interest in them at the time and didn't take note of which site they were on. I know NLS have a set online for Scotland, but these are 1" OS based. The ones I saw were larger scale (showing streets and buildings) with annotations for industries, factory types, infrastructure buildings &c. Does anyone know where I can find English sheets?

thanks in anticipation.

Not sure if the above Link, shows the particular German Invasion Map, You are looking for.

Add: Sorry reread Your Post, I believe You require the Ordnance Survey Map of Sheffield, 6" to the Mile, English Version only.

Thank you Sandblown.
I think you were right first time round. It was a few years ago that I came across them for Sheffield so I could not remember the exact scale, just that there was a fair amount of detail. These are from 6inch OS and fit the need well. I just need to check through for the areas I have been asked about.
Also satisfying to find the High Command booklets there, photos of sites no longer existing, fascinating.

thanks again. 'nuff said.
