Trivia Quiz for the day - Going MapMay 20 2010 at 3:23 PM

Was in the regimental archives today, and noticed some 1944 maps of a type I'd never seen before.
You may be familiar with the Defence Overprint maps in 1:25,000 that had the various German positions printed on them.
Anyone want to tell the class what a "Going Map" is?
Neatest thing I ever saw.
Our archives had a copy of Caen, second edition, March 1944 1:25,000, both the Defence Overprint edition, and the Going Map edition. The Def Overprint is for 6 Aug 1944, Operation TOTALIZE. I grabbed scans of a portion of the map; I'll post images after someone posts the answer. I'd never heard of these before.
