    Tony, the map that you have attached with the numbered arrows is one that i have in four parts, I think. I don't have a section showing Anzio & Nettuno. I was sent them from a decent chap via the forum, see attached section below. I've followed your instructions, and got so far. I have to say, it looks like a brilliant site. With further guidance, I'm sure I'll get the map I'm after. Its a shame that it does not translate into English.. Its fine with the other Country's (some-what strange). I thought I'd got a top quality map with the National Geographic one of Italy, but that map is only sold within the US. See post 34, link provided by Owen.

    Thanks for your time & advice.

    Perhaps the 'translate ' function depends on which browser you use, mine is Chrome and it's fine. Once the web page is open right click and select 'translate to English'.

    The translate function also works with the help pop up, see help button, bottom right.

    Tony, you must have been reading my mind. I was going to ask which browser you was using. I think this could be fun. If I've any problems, I'm sure you will put me right.. Will cart on with your advise.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Stu
    Unfortunately don't have a date etc as I only photographed that small section, not the whole as I normally do, it containing mainly the sea.
    I normally extract the photo file and place it into another of maps, but sure it came from either the 2nd Wiltshires or Camaronians (13 Inf Bde) for 1944.
    Will let you know if different.

    Hello James, thank-you for your reply. Not meaning to be pedant here, but can you please check the Regimental History's of 13 Inf Brigade for 44? I can't see the map in any of the three Regimental History's that I have. Sorry if I'm being a pain here, but I would like a full copy of that map..
    No problem if you can't provide it.

    Hello Stuart
    Sorry for delay in getting back, there were no maps in 13 infantry Bde's war diary, but checking back, sure it came from Wilts diary which I viewed for supporting documents as I have a transcribed version from their museum.
    The picture was taken 2013. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    James, thank-you for your reply & time. The map will pop up some where on the internet. I'll probably come across it when I'm looking for something else.

    Charley, you have set yourself a gigantic task there. It would be some what easy to just add the Red Eagles (Fourth Indian Division). You do have a enough info on them & plenty of coin spent.. If you only intend to cover that Division, then that may well not be cricket.
    I think you have been some what vague on battalion movements etc. Looking forward to seeing it completed. Good luck with the

    I'm hoping that with the War Diaries for bothe battalion and brigade, plus the Regimental Histories I should be able to piece it all together - on the back-burner for the moment, but the map was a helpful find.

    Sorry that I'm going of topic here, but how about
    showing different maps of any Corps, Division, Regiment or Battalion in any theatre of operations. Its just a thought. I include some maps of the 1st British Infantry Division at Anzio. The remainder are in PDF. One will need a A 3 scanner again. Some of these maps may well have been posted in the past.

    Hi All,

    Whilst researching my late father service in the R.E Italy 44-45, i have came across this website for maps :-

    The scan are of high resolution so you can zoom in to quite a high level of ground detail.

    Hope its of some use.
