AA Decoys Clyde

Recent Page Trail:

This page is locked to prevent accidental updates, as data listed here should be taken from the pages for the sites concerned, and not entered here first.

(:quicktoc:) The Site Name column shows most of the decoy names given in the individual reports for each location.

NOTE Small initial letters such as aN10 are used to overcome a gma recipe bug that fouls up use of the link='name' option.

Google Earth KML data is on the left side of the table below, columns gma1 and VE1. RCAHMS data is to the right side, in columns gma2 and VE2, tagged with RC in the link name, to identify the marker.

Records for SF and C prefix decoys ARE deliberately duplicated, and can appear twice. SF decoys are assigned the records, and C decoys are referred to them. This is simply to allow the two series, SF and C, to be seen as series, so show how complete their sequence is, or is not.

A number of entries direct the reader to use another entry, eg Use SF13d. This is to avoid repeating the same data, and also plotting multiple, identical markers on top of one another, which is confusing and pointless. Google mapping will plot all the markers, but only the marker on top of the pile can be clicked and identified, so those below are of limited value.

Observations

  1. Edenbarnet KML and RCAHMS locations are widely separated
  2. Craigend and Craigmaddie locations seem to be mixed together between KML and RCAHMS
  3. SF15e given as Newcastle, Whitburn, with NGR point landing near Renfrew, west of Kilbarchan, so clearly is suspect
    • August 25, 2007. Information from wartime resident of Kilbarchan that they have no knowledge of a decoy ever having existed nearby
  4. Glasgow, Edenbarnet, C15c has differing locations between GE KML and RCAHMS data
  5. Glasgow, Craigmaddie, C15e is suspect as it lies in the midst of 3 Craigend NGR points
