Lot 0008V
This is a very rare, original vintage WWII allied air crew bombing run target chart for "Verona M/Y's, Italy," dated April, 1944. States "Prepared Under the Direction of Intelligence MAAF." Inteaded for allied air crews only, it is marked "RESTRICTED" in several places. On the back is an aerial photograph of the target area (states "Photography by MAPRC" - MAPRW was the Mediterranean Allied Photo Reconnaissance Command). 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, a small amount of darkening along parts of a couple of the folds, and a little wear on one edge. 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.
