Lot 0001D
This is a very rare, original vintage WWII allied air crew bombing run target chart for "Odental (Formerly Deschowitz) Synthetic Oil and Coking Plants, Germany," dated May, 1944. States "Prepared Under the Direction of Intelligence MAAF." Inteaded for allied air crews only, it is marked "RESTRICTED" in several places. Has markings (probably made by the navigator or bombardier) next to the target for that mission. On the back is an aerial photograph of the target area (states "Photography by MAPRW" - MAPRW was the Mediterranean Allied Photo Reconnaissance Wing). Approx. 19" x 20". This is one of five bombing run target maps/charts included in this auction; we've been doing this for over 20 years and we've NEVER seen these before.


Excellent condition except for some light denting, a little wrinkling at the ends of a couple of the folds, and a small amount of darkening along parts of a couple of the folds. Considering what this was for and where it went, the condition is amazing - it looks like it must have been put into an envelope and stored away for 70 years.
