PostSubject: British Army Maps of Germany 1945   20/2/2009, 14:37

Have purchased several maps produced by the War Office in 1945
Iserlohn along with Dortmund & Hamm as they border the Iserlohn map also Hameln there must have been a shortage of paper in those days as the the map was printed on the back of a 1940 German map of Maryborough Ireland! confused If appears that ownership of the map does not give you copyright that appears to still remain with the crown study can anybody expand on this?

That is some list of maps, Steve!

What sort of price are they fetching? (probably out of my league anyway).

From what I can gather, Crown Copyright can apply to a multitude of documents, etc - the ins and outs have passed over my scrambled noggin at about the stratosphere Very Happy

One thing I did find was that the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 change a whole heap of things, including the length of time the Copyright is in force (of items already covered I take it) - 50 years from the date of said Act which makes it January 1st 2040 Exclamation

It might pay to contact the Office of Public Sector Information about Crown Copyright. http://www.opsi.gov.uk/ or www.opsi.gov.uk/about/contact-us/index

Hi Paul
Thanks for that...have been down the road with another website that I put together and it seems if you publish Crown Copyright material you need a licence which I have...just unsure of the rules so as always seek advice cheers

I noticed that you removed the sellers e-mail at his request. I would be very interested in buying some of these maps so can you tell us who the seller is and how to get in touch?

PostSubject: 1: 100,000 AMS M641 (GSGS 4416) 1944 Coverage   31/10/2015, 15:24

AMS 641 1:100,000 Library Maps:  over printed with    Nord de Guerre Grid (Datum point Paris)  important for helping to tie-up GR found in War Diary (BR) / After Action Review (US)  reports   and the places they mean!

http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/ams/central_europe/index_map.jpg

only the Lauenburg   Map sheet  (Elbe Crossing)  is missing  from this collection.

Here the 1:25,000 AMS M841 (GSGS4414) are listed alphabetically most, although printed at the end of WW2 (1945 -51), have the German Grid and so cannot be used to identify GR given in War Diaries or After Action reviews - albeit maps at this scale are often sufficiently detailed to identify larger sites (Barracks / airfields) and roads. All sheets are marked with Latitude and Longitude (along edges of map) so that places identified on the maps (with a little line drawing) can be compared with current GPS or Google / Bing Maps.

I haven't tried printing any out but each sheet is around 1.2 Mb
