    I don’t think I’ve shown these before. They’re not emergency rations so don’t really belong in this thread, however, they’re very useful for storing escape compasses in

    I have finally managed to obtain the last variant of 43 Series map which has alluded me for some time, most likely as only 10,000 were produced. I have only ever seen a couple of examples for sale which were out of my price range so I was very happy to get this one. As can be seen it is Sheet D and Sheet F. It is printed on Rayon with a heat sealed edge. It is noticeable that Sheet D is smaller than Sheet F.

    According to Dr Barbara Bonds book the print run for the 43 Series are as follows:

    43A/B - 350,000
    43C/D - 300,000
    43C/E - 60,000
    43D/F - 10,000
    43E - 4,500
    43E/F - 35,000
    43F/G - 15,000
    43G/H - 35,000
    43K East/West - 350,000
