German maps marking explanation

good morning every one ,

I am not at all an expert in WWII German maps and I would like to know if someone could help me as to the location of the following areas (which are crash places of Ju88C6 of ZG1 in Apr 1944);
I guess they are in the South West of France as ZG1 was based in Bordeaux at that time but any precision on their geographical area will be welcome;
Thanks a lot.
GC

14/3884 approx north of one above
14W/0717 way out in the Bay north of Finnistere, west of the ones above
14W/3874 west of 14W/3884


All appear to be at sea

Hi, Gilles,

You could download here
https://www.gyges.dk/reporting_grids.htm

my LUMA converter (and the pdf explanation) for free.

Then can convert degree/minutes/second geo data here
https://www.pgc.umn.edu/apps/convert/

into decimal geo coordinates to enter into google maps
