    Does anyone know the location of the target coded 'Silverthorne'?

    Thanks

    Tom,

    Silverthorne was the 'gardening' code for minelaying in the Kattegat area.

    Silverthorne was a gardening target/area, around the area of Hovedstaden (Denmark).

    There is a very handy map of the zones and codes for that region on this site:
