    Default Map Reference P4447

    Has anyone any idea what the following refers to:

    Map Reference P4447

    I have seen the same location referred to as V4447 and VP4447. I believe this is connected to the crash location of the accident card for Halifax III MZ311 EY-M. This aircraft crashed returning from a gardening operation to La Rochelle on the night of the 25/26 August 1944. There are a number of anomalies in the accident reports and the tour of inquiry records as the Lat/Long for the crash site is miles away from Cleeve Hill where the aircraft is alleged to have come down. Is there a catalogue of RAF reference points that anyone is aware of?

    I am aware of the other thread which is running connection to this loss.

    Many thanks

    Ah, right so it is in fact a 4 figure grid reference which should read VP 44 47, which translates to 51.56W 02.00W which does point to a location on Cleeve Hill.

    Brilliant, thanks
