Exercise is planning for war or operations... generally speaking it's always best to go with the most up to date info rather than continue to use maps and data that may be a few years out of date and hope for no **** ups.They used to churn these out all the time....why a new set of maps virtually every exercise i'll never know!
These maps had specific overprints and the legend isn't visible, but it could be that the overprints show areas out of bounds for exercise traffic or cross country movement which may change depending on the time of year the exercise was being held or whether the local Germans were fed up with half of BAOR trundling through their village.
For a laugh I considered contacting the seller of these 'Post WW2 maps' implying I was police investigating why maps belonging to the MOD were being sold for personal gain when they should have been destroyed in 1987.... couldn't be arrsed..
£69.95 asking price?! ffs... hasn't even put 'as used by the SAS' in the selling blurb.
