    This is apparently a map made in preparation for a Polish occupation of England by the Warsaw Pact, with phonetic place names. May amuse people in or from SE England.

    DAAAAAHN to MAGYT. I think my favourite is Czypyng-Onga though.

    SAUFEND replacing the TH with a F. ACCURATE.

    Nice to see RAMFED on there, but my hometown seems to be hidden under the hatching. :(

    This is MY KIND of topic by the way. I've just bought this to hang in the study. :disco:

    Basildon is missing which makes sense 'cos it was built post-war, but I've just spotted it's now-suburb PYSTII. :D

    Of course.

    And "Billericay-Dicky" appears to be the name of a SONG by an artist who isn't Kylie or Britney. :)

    Oh I thought FEREK was FERRY! Thurrock makes much more sense.
