This was copied from an original in the possession of the late Dennis Dear, Bomb Aimer in EM-G LM125 of 207 Squadron who flew on this raid.

“Unfortunately my target map is virginal! On some of my other target maps there are pencilled notes re target indicator colours etc. but this night must have been simple and did not justify notes. Target maps were pretty useless anyway and only contributed in that they could be used to familiarise oneself with main features before take-off. In this example one could only have hoped to see the bend in the river given a clear night!"

The circles 1, 2, 3, 4 etc are 1 mile apart.
