    It's not currently for sale.

    Another thought. These are older pictures. Present day graffiti is certainly on top of the black squares. However, at some point in its recent history, I believe the site was used by a paintballing club. I wonder if they added codes to the buildings to assist in their wargaming.

    The paintballing link looks very promising but is it possible to follow up?

    With the present day graffiti on top of the black square it must be very unlikely that the square and letters are original unless the paintballers repainted them but I guess that you and others have thought of that already. 


  2. Looking at the photo of the "FH" building it looks (at least on my phone) that the black square could be painted on top of some of the graffiti. When I look at the rest of building, it is strange that the square isn't more covered with graffiti if the square was there first. Also, looking at the condition of the brickwork, doesn't the black square and white of the F & H appear too good to be contemporary with the building's military history.

    Here's the full picture with no text taken taken by me through a glass screen,

    Was the book in a museum? If it was it may still be on display and therefore worth you contacting the museum for the book's title.

    Yes it was worth it. OK, so it's in quite poor condition, but it is the very last example. How many more times in history are we just going to scrap the last example of something because at the time, we feel it is worthless.  Worth every penny to save a unique piece of German and English history.

    I couldn't agree with you more.
