  1. Hi Folks,

    Can anyone help me out with finding some APP6a Map Marking symbols in electronic format. I have tried various websites and there doesn't seem to be anything suitable (tried a map symbols site and it was just way too complicated!)

    Was hoping that someone might have a set of all of the common symbols made up in word format for easy cutting and pasting into other documents.

    any help would be greatly appreciated:)

  2. Contact BRACKENBURY TDW at Chicksands. They will be able to square you away.
  3. The complete APP6A symbology is integral to the Combat interface on Bowman.

    It may be theoretically possible to take some screen shots and utilise these by saving them into Open Office and from there into MS Office format.
  4. Failing that, they are included as a font in the electronic battle box.
  5. thanks guys,

    Getting a disc from the Electronic Battle Box tomorrow:)

    Thanks for the help though
  6. Did you know that it was an RLC major who had a hobby making True Type Fonts that created the original AAP6 Map Symbol fonts - he was in the ARRC at the time as it prepared for Bosnia......
