Hi All,
On the detail page for Kurt Necesany (the pilot who "Claimed" BZ753) the Location is quoted as 24W/2764.
Even with my limited knowledge this does not appear to be a map reference as BZ753 went down in the Bay of Biscay.Any ideas?The web site is www.luftwaffe.cz/necesany.html .

Regards

Mike.

Looks like part of a shipping report location, this is the normal format for example
1:N1.2 N 24 52' 36.000" W 166 19' 48.000" 24.87666667 -166.33000000 LNM 21/08, 14th Dist 2764 19007_1 5/21/2008

Hi,
I've started my own research into BZ753.
How were you able to convert the LUMA grid reference that Nescany reported? I've been reading up on it and holy cow is it a nightmare for laymen.

Hey mate, you know I don't remember I'll have to reread what I did but if I can do it, it can't be rocket science :)
