    Default Identity of target 8/9 September 1943

    Does anyone know what the actual target was which was attacked on the night of 8/9 September 1943. In the ORB for 35 Squadron it is given as "Special Target" in France and there is a lat/long for phase 1 and a lat/long for phase 2. Ive tried to plot these on google maps but it plots it in the English Channel. I'm guessing that there must be some sort of conversion required from the 1943 figures to match a modern day map?

    The coordinates are as follows:

    Phase 1 50.43N 01.34E

    Phase 2 50.42N 01.34E

    Any advice gratefully accepted.

    Many thanks

    I thought it was Boulogne Long Range Coastal Artillery Battery.
