Sujet : Operation Neptune Coordinates   --   Auteur : Eric
Date : 14/04/2010, 02H58
I'm doing my master's thesis on Operation Quicksilver IV (sub-operation within Operation Fortitude), and one aspect of my thesis is an analysis of the Fortitude and Neptune targets. I have copies of the target lists from the British National Archives, and have had few problems plotting targets. However, I've run into a snag that I can't find a way out of.
Several of the targets are identified with 8 digit map grid, vs the standard 4 or 6 digit grids. Here is an example...

Headquarters A. O 008600185
I understand that "O" is shorthand for French Lambert Zone 1 vO, but the 8 digit grid makes no sense. This occurs several times...sometimes with a single letter prefix, and sometimes not.
Another example...
Headquarters TAILLEVILLE 00338228
Tailleville is identifiable on the map, and should be on FLZ1 vT, but beyond that...?

Has anyone run into this before? Thanks!

Eric
