[ISHMap-List] British Military Map Inquiry on Northern Ireland

Hi Julian,

Would it be possible to get a digital sample of a grid tile with grid info visible?  Preferably an urban area, as I can cross ref grid coordinates on the Mil Map with modern digital map archive we have access, to here, to check if they are Irish Grid.  Also can I get a sample a ref as recorded in the logs?

Best Regards


Conor Graham

To Whom It May Concern,

My name is Jillian Augustat and I am a research assistant at the University of Michigan. I am currently studying the troubles in Northern Ireland and many of my primary military documents are from the archives. My research team visited the archives in 2010 and brought back copies of British military maps of Northern Ireland, but I am having trouble matching up the coordinates of the military maps with locations mentioned in the British military log files.

The real issue is that most of the military log files I have don't include the Grid Reference Sq. Letter necessary to locate the place on a map. For example, on IMG_2681, there are 6 digit Grid Reference points, but no letters in which to identify the square it's in.
I was wondering if there was a British military historian I could reach or possibly a map historian. Any and all information is appreciated.

Thank you,

Jillian Augustat
