    Default RAF coordinates in Tunisia

    Hello,

    I know there is a converter online for coordinates used by RAF in Europe (http://www.echodelta.net/mbs/eng-welcome.php), but I am searching where was the coordinate coded Z.6109 in Tunisia. The future author Paul Brickhill was shot down on 17 March 1943 in this area.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Laurent

    After a bit of digging it looks like the location is roughly 10Km east of Mareth. Use this link to see a 1941 map of the area http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/ams/l...6-pisida-1.jpg

    A 1:100,000 scale map can be viewed here http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/ams/t...-mareth-83.jpg

    Kind regards
    Pierre

    Thanks Pierre,

    Is there a method to calculate the position starting from the code Z.6109 ? I would be interested to know how to find myself positions from such codes.
