Map of potential flood areas Vietnam 1966

Postby muckaroon1960 » Tue Apr 12, 2016 5:54 pm

Seeing Pete/Panzerheld's map of Liverpool reminded me of this map I have. Its a map showing potential flood areas in the Da Nang and surrounding areas in Quang Nam province, Vietnam. Map is circa 1967 and was produced by the US Department of Defense. The red lines show flooded roads. Also I noticed a small village near the coast towards the bottom of the map called "My Lai".....(next to the red flooded road).

Bought off T'internet a few years ago. No prizes for guessing which auction site. The map to go for though is "Saigon"..worth mega bucks!

Cracker map Mucka, isn't My Lai the place where a "Massacre" took place, or something?
