I had a map exactly like this from the age of 10 years which was stolen a few years ago. I traded for it as a kid and it was a prize possession. It was trimmed in the shape of the island, I'm told to save weight. There were some numbers in pencil on the back. Any chance I could purchase a replacement map? The father of the boy I traded with was a pharmacists mate in the navy. Contact me if you want more information. I was going to have it framed.
