France and Belgium : 1:100,000 : GSGS 2364

GSGS 2364 : France and Belgium : 1:100,000
When the British Expeditionary Force was sent to France in 1914, they took with them small scale topographical maps, not trench maps.

The 1:100,000 maps forming the series GSGS 2364 essentially cover Belgium and northern France. They are on a single set of sheet lines but have France or Belgium in the map heading.

The multicoloured Belgian 1:100,000 was redrawn at the War Office, copper plates were photoetched at the Ordnance Survey, and then printed at the War Office to produce GSGS 2364. More sheets, covering northern France were subsequently produced on the same sheet lines and extended the area covered by GSGS 2364.

(These notes are based on an article by John Cruickshank, which also includes an index diagram for the series.)

All maps are cloth backed and folded, with the cover details stamped on the front. Those marked with an asterisk * have no cover details.

Most maps are headed : For official use only.
