    Give me about a year to photograph more goodies from the US Nat'l Archives. WWII was fought in less time than it takes me to accomplish my goals...

    The first one is a "sketch" detailing White City...
    The second details Aberdeen...

    Some larger scale maps...
    CAB44-184 Map C, in four parts...
    This map is mostly of interest to 16 Brigade researchers...

    HC,

    That White City map is the icing on the cake! And the Aberdeen map is a great companion to Steve's posted Aberdeen sketchmap. Sure wish I could have found Aberdeen imagery, though.

    Thanks again for all the hard work HC. I only started this thread as a way of providing Matt with some basic info on these strongholds. Now it has grown in to quite a TV Times thread. "I never knew there was so much in it!"
