US claim location system

Dear gentlemen,
does anybody know where Square Y-9520 is located referring to a claim by a 111 Rec. Squadron fighter pilot of the USAAF?

Thanks in advance!

Michael

Re: US claim location system

That is going to depend on which "map" the square is located. The system is explained here: http://www.echodelta.net/mbs/eng-overview.php

But several of the maps have a "Y" location. wY9520 (on the French Lambert Zone 2 map) is near Grenobel, for example. But other maps also have a "Y9520" location. bY9520 on the French Lambert zone 3 map is in the sea south of Toulon.

Re: US claim location system

This is a claim on April 30, 1945 at 0930 hours for a Ju 88 destroyed, by 2nd Lt Frank D Bell. On April 16 the 111th TRS made claims SE of Ulm and in the Nurnburg area. Earlier claims in April were at Ingolstadt, Rothenburg and Haguenau. Spellings are based on the mission reports, and can be wrong. So it will be necessary to determine the proper map of Germany in order to pin down Y-9520. My copies of the mission reports are not accessible at the moment; they may indicate the map being referenced.

Enjoy!

Frank.

Good morning Frank !

Your location (w)Y-9520 may be hosted in the Nord de Guerre grid. If so, the location is about 5 km South of Holzkirchen, which is located South of Munich, Germany.

Best wishes !

Horst Weber
