Silk map scarf

Square silk escape map made from 100% silk and made in Italy. The map includes Holland, Belgium (except the West Coast), France (North East) and Germany (West & Central).

During the Second World War British airmen were given lightweight escape maps (usually silk) to use in case they had to make an emergency landing or bail out over enemy territory. It was hoped the maps would help aircrew avoid capture and make their way to neutral territory and back to Britain.

80cm x 80cm, 100% silk. Comes in a gift box.
