Re: "Normal Quadrat" grid system used by U-Boats in Black Sea
Date: August 08, 2019 08:59PM

Hi Andrey, the Black Sea U-boats used standard Kriegsmarine grid squares in their KTBs. The "Norm" in the message means standard squares. The grid squares in radio messages to U-boats were usually disguised. The system for disguising the squares in the Black Sea was different than in the Atlantic. In the Atlantic only the letters and the first two digits were disguised. In this message all four digits are disguised. It appears from the KTB that SQ52 and 53 were square CL92 and 93 so on the Caucasus coast.
