    I am reading a war diary, kindly given by Wills and it mentions MR then numbers - I presume these are co-ordinates.

    The diary is of the landings at Juno beach.

    Does anyone know what these mean, and if they do, the location of the them.

    Codes -

    MR 7F 989855

    MR 7F 998995

    MR 992848

    MR 994854

    MR = Map Reference .
    Lots of us use this to translate them to co-ords you can put into Google Earth & find the location.
    use this grid for JUNO. to find which prefix to put in front of map ref.
    in this case it is vT
    vT989855 = 49° 20' 11'' N 0° 25' 50'' W
