is a cloth map of Holland, Belgium (except West Coast), France (North East), and Germany (West & Central). It measures 28" x 28". I can not guarantee it is from the World War II, era but it was in my grandparent's home. My grandfather was a medic in World War II. But again, I do not know for sure. Map does not show any military items.
This map has no date on it, and is titled "Sheet C". It was obviously part of a larger map.
It has been folded for quite some time and crease marks are visible. T are a few small holes near an intersection of 2 folds, which I have shown in the photos.
