So my 81yr old father says to me the other day " I found something in my papers I thought you may like" and hands me this map.
I asked him where & when he got it and he said "as a child" .... he says his father bought it during the war from a map shop in Sydney.
The price penciled on the front is 2/6 which was a reasonable cost ( almost a weeks worth of groceries in 1944 )
My guess is that these were sold after the Normandy invasion to allow people to plot out / follow the progress of the allied armies....?????
HEC Robinsons were gone by the 1950's ... anyone seen one of these?
