Hold on a second

I think Tyrannosaurus Rex should be considered
Is that Europe? If so some sort of tyrannosaurid would be proper. T.rex is a North American critter.

Please see here in the red circle ( map = A.W. )
Target Reference- Pre Plotted Artillery impact areas
Which does connect to this as a landmark

How about Reconnaissance Tower, as per Sheldrake, there was a water tower there that was being used for reconnaissance, as per Hanny's link.
The marks indicate a intent to use the tower as a reference point for adjusting artillery fire onto nearby targets. TRP = Target Reference Point is more common on other maps I've seen. Usually there is a identification number adjacent to simplify which reference point is to be used. Perhaps this map & the target planning were not further developed for this situation. Are there any other marks on the map?

TRex was a 1979s rock bank. The late Tommy Bolen played lead, did most of the vocals, and wrote or cowrote a portion of the repitore.
