201. Réseau Comète on the Map..

By Piperade
24th January 2013. As both my regular readers will be aware, I've taken a great interest in the Comet Line that was set up in WWII by a 24 year old Belgian woman - Andrée de Jongh. If this subject is new to you, then scroll down and look in the left hand column to where it says Shortcuts.. Click on Comet Line. A few minutes reading there should bring you up to speed. I've thought for long enough that the activities of Comet during the war deserve a large scale map and so I've been busy the last few days populating an interactive map with sites of special significance to those interested in the Comet story.
Hold your cursor on any of the markers and a brief description should appear - clicking on the markers should bring up an image. Just underneath where it says Terrain (in the top right hand corner of the map) there's a button that will bring the map up in full screen.
Please let me know if you spot any major omissions or inaccuracies. The images are a mix of my own plus those I've trawled from various places on the net. If I happen to have used one of your images and you'd rather I hadn't, let me know and I'll remove it.
