    Alan, I appriciate that your thread is over a year old now, but just in case you still have the map and wanted to a know bit more I thought I'd add my 10pence worth!
    The 'Zones of France' escape map is one of the most sought after maps as they were issues to troops for D-Day, most notably US and British paratroopers hence the interest in them (Major John HOWARD of Pegasus Bridge fame had one!) I have two in my collection, one made of silk and one cotton, which I have shown on a thread elsewhere on the site. The silk used for the maps was quite often rejected material from the production of parachutes.
    As for value, the 'Zones of France' map realises between 100 - 150 on Ebay.

    Thanks for following up such along time. The original question started with my in law being given the map. I have learned much from the thread. The map has now been put away where it is safe.

    The Norway map shown earlier is probably not silk. Its printed on a rayon type synthetic material. Its part of the 43 series of maps printed in 1943. 43 FGS A/E. The number 43 may not be printed on the map but its from that series.
