    Default Trying to ID Location

    Hi,

    Trying to confirm location. A reported dated May 24th 1940 records the location of a crashed Miles Magister at X-236-100 / Y-291-600

    Can anyone help please.

    TIA

    Do you have a probable location of its home airfield please? That would help to zone down the many choices available. If those numbers are credible OS co-ords, then it needs a two-letter suffix to pin down the map it refers to. My neck of the woods, the East Midlands, use the letters SK, but there are many others. See the Ordnance Survey webpage for a breakdown.
    Should the craft fly from somewhere like Tatenhill, near Burton on Trent, then SK23612916 would locate to the railway line S of Marston on Dove. But I'm only making a wild guess.

    Hi,

    Sorry I should have said, the aircraft crashed in France.
