    Default Help with map reference in Belgium MR3/K/16

    Hi All,

    Can anyone help me with this map reference? It is from an MREU report about burials in Belgium, but I don't recognize the coordinates. It's been a while since I've done any map reading.

    MR3/K/16 is supposedly near Schaffen, Belgium.

    there is another referencein the same report, Mechelen 3/K.56, that also needs decrypting

    thanks.
    David

    Hello dfuller 52,

    This may be what you seek ?

    Mechelen 3

    Could be the place and number of graves, K may refer to the row and 56 to the number
    again, M3 and row K grave number 16.
    But that may not be correct.
    However here is the link to the CWGC pages. Only three rest there among the many.

    Hope this helps
    Alex
