Belgian NGI Maps

For some reason I can't seem to locate an index map for the Belgian NGI 1:20,000 series maps. I want to obtain the sheets covering Wijtschate-Messines (including the Maedestede Farm crater), Hill 60 and Tyne Cot/Passendale. I know that they will form parts of Sheets 20 and 28 but could some kind soul tell me the exact 1;20000 maps I will need for those locations?

Many thanks.,

Mark H.

Mark,

28 5-6 covers Messines and Wijtschate. I hope that helps.

Thanks very much. I shall order them straightaway. Mind you, with the post as it is, will I receive them in time for my tour?

Mark - I picked up my maps in the Flanders Field Museum bookshop in the Grote Market - a much maligned museum, but a very good little shop...

Hi Mark,

Same as Magic Rat puchased mine at In Flanders Fields Museum Shop at 5.75 euros each a couple of years ago. Money well spent even if as a Yorkshireman I say so!

Best Wishes
