RAF WW2 Sheet Identification
Maps with a "43" or "44" along
an edge and a large single letter
along the edge are part of sheets, printed in 1943, covering the European Theater.
The "44" series covers the Far East.
If your sheet has a single
capital letter or a capital
letter followed by a number,
you also have an RAF sheet. There are about seventy three sheets in this series.
Variants of the same sheet exist, as do many combinations.
If your sheet has a letter
followed by a number or a number
followed by a capital
letter then a lower case letter, more than likely you have an Air Ministry sheet.
There are ten different sheets in the main Air Ministry Series. The Air Ministry maps
have a subset, commonly referred to as Air Ministry Miniatures, because of their size
and are at 1:250,000 scale in eight colors. There are 73 sheets in this subset.
The Miniatures are all single sided. Several of the main Air Ministry sheets are double sided.
