I'd love to see the lists on the website and will be happy to

I am wondering if these lists from GSGS 2001 upwards are
in a form that could be put on the CCS website? A decided
minority of these numbers apply to OS mapping adapted for
military use, or drawn by OS on behalf of GSGS, and a larger
number were printed either by OS, or by civil firms on
behalf of OS.
I have used the Lithographic Room Day Book: it
is not the most straightforward of documents to interpret!
It should be borne in mind that quite a few GSGS series have
'disappeared', in whole or part, and may either be
represented by a few chance survivals in private collections
- or have vanished completely! (anyone out there got a GSGS
2525 lurking in the attic? Well, thought I'd ask...)
Following on from Andrew Cook’s
comment, I took photographs of a couple of pages
from the Lithographic Room Day Book when at
TNA investigating the possible origin of Gerry
Zierler’s “Mystery Map”, I am happy to supply copies
of these as there are additional reference numbers.
However, at least in the sections I consulted, the
book simply records the production of proofs and
there is a note on the fly leaf stating Entries
in this book are not to be taken as evidence that
stock was printed. In the section I copied
most of the maps recorded are for areas outside
Europe. Although, there are also some unreferenced
items, e.g. Aeroplanes for Home Forces.

Richard Oliver has a partial
list of GSGS numbers in Military Maps (CCS,
2004). Does anyone know of a more comprehensive
list available to us locked-downers?
