This weekend's flea market find.

 

My question is: Is this the map he used or did he just keep a map and later put in his units positions?

I've had quite a few bring home maps over the years and they always have little to no hand writteninfo on them.

It appears that these positions are in the suburbs of southern Cologne.

Overall a very detailed map with a key to numbered buildings with 290 identified structures.
