    A smaller series of cloth maps was produced at a scale of 1:1,000,000 or 1:1,250,000 depicting the Scandinavian and Northern Europe region. These were referred to as the FGS series. I only have sheet A/B at present

    The MI 9 unit located in India was very impressed with the 43 series of Europe so MI 9 in London offered to produce a large number of similar cloth maps covering Southeast Asia. Accordingly, in 1944, a like series of maps was produced with identical colors and scales. These were also composites of existing International Maps of the World sheets. There are eight cloth map sheets each identified by the prefix 44 followed by an upper case letter, I am missing two maps (C/D and R/S)

    This is sheet A and B of the 44 Series

    Map 'N' and 'O' of the Asiatic -Pacific Theater 44 Series.
    This map is enormous to the extent that it is barely useable as an escape map. It measures 42'' x 33'' and is 'plasticy' in construction which makes it very difficult to fold and unfold. It is shown with map 'M' from the same 44 series for size comparison
