Wartime Leicestershire has a couple of maps used by the Germans during their bombing of England in 1940 - 1941. The two maps of Leicestershire are at a scale of 1:10,000 and appear to be copies of Ordinance Survey maps of the time. Also on the site is a map of the county indicating the location of bomb drops.

According to the news.telegraph, some of these 65 year old maps are still being used to locate unexploded bombs by building consultants.
