Original German WWII Luftwaffe Night Flight Navigator Map of England "Battle of Britain" - Dated 1941

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The very map used by German bomber navigators during the Battle of Britain and the Blitz in WWII! Even better, this map is bright YELLOW, which means it is the type of map used during night time raids! This of course made it much easier to see in the dark cabins of German bombers.

This is a wonderful waterproof vinyl type map with Luftwaffe Eagles surrounding LUFT - NAVIGATIONSKARTE IN MERKATORPROJEKTION (Air- Navigation Map in Mercator Projection) across the top. This double sided map is of England and Ireland, Northern France, Belgium and Holland on the front and the reverse is Germany, southern Denmark and parts of Holland. The areas covered were basically all that was needed for the bombing flights against Britain. It has been "overprinted" in red with symbols indicating various features including navigation beacons (Navigationsfunkfeuer). The waxy finish made it very durable, and meant that chinagraph pencils could be used to plot courses, etc. and then be wiped off once the mission was complete

This is an true air navigation map in Mercator projection and was printed in 1941. These maps were specifically produced for the Luftwaffe, and coordinates were different from the army and navy. The dates place this during the Battle of Britain which lasted from July 1940 to June 1941!

The map is in excellent condition with bright colors and no tears it measures 25" x 27". Most attractive and ready to display!
