Aerial map Uomaa.

Post by kuuskajaskari » 26 Mar 2022 07:58

Maps of Timo Meriluoto. There is an aerial view of the Uomaa area on June 29, 1944, about ten days before the battle of the U-line.
Made ready July 6, 1944.
What do those signs mean: circled K, M, A, etc.

A = Ampumatarvikevarastoalue(?) = Ammunition storage area.
K = Kuormastovarastoalue(?) = Vehicle storage area.
M = Majoitusalue = Accommodation area.
P = Poltto- ja voiteluainevarastoalue = Fuel and lubricant storage area.
V = Varastoalue = Storage area.

It was attached to an aerial map taken of parts of Karelian Isthmus during summer of 1944.

Nice map! My grandfather was there in July of -44, from the 7th I believe, with JR4 (9th Coy).
