    Default map coordinates MR755465

    Hello

    I'm at pain to locate these map coordinates. Captain P.C.A. Hawkins of No. 661 Squadron force-landed his Auster on this spot on 17th September 1944, after being hit by light anti aircraft fire at Boulogne. It should be in the general area east of Boulogne-sur-Mer in the Pas-de-Calais département.

    I tried various combination on echodelta translator without success.

    Can anyone help me to sort this out ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Joss, how about:

    http://www.echodelta.net/mbs/eng-translation.php and entering vg755465 with the 'Nord de guerre' zone. Comes up approx 10km south-east of Boulogne.

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Hello Tom,

    Thanks for your help. I really feel stupid, as I stuck to the MR code but I'm glad we are now coming up with a precise location.

    Regards

    Joss
