Ordnance Survey, Quarter Inch to the Mile, 4th Edition, (with National Grid). War Office Edition, GSGS 4650 graphic

These maps at quarter inch to the mile (1:253,440) were reduced from larger-scale mapping at the half-inch and one-inch to the mile scales. These maps were substantially revised and updated from the third edition maps, particularly with new road and railway information. Their larger sheet size, allowed all of Scotland to be covered in nine sheets, numbered from south to north. The quarter-inch to the mile series provides an overview of significant landscape features, including larger settlements, railways, and roads, and were also of value for air navigation, with the location of aerodromes also shown. This military map series was issued by the War Office and carries their Geographical Section, General Staff (GSGS) number, 4650. These maps are held at: Map.Area.C18(65B).
