    Evasion Chart EVC NI-38F

    Post by BM on Thu Oct 04, 2018 5:04 pm

    I was at a military show this past week end and one of the dealers had brought this chart (map) along in case I
    was interested in it.
     It is made of what feels like a waxy, stiff paper and is 41-1/2 inches by 58 inches. Ir has a desert 7 camo print
    which gives it a splotchy color. It has a chart on both sides. It covers part of Iraq and Iran.
     Besides being a chart, it has survival information in the borders about map reading, edible plants, first aid, survival
    and it can even be used to catch rain or used as a personal shelter. When folded up, it is only 10-1/2 14-1/2 inches.

    I have a few of those, and they can be found for sale occasionally. Nearly all of mine are dated from the early 1990s (with a few indicating "Soviet Union"). Yours being 2005 is the newest I've ever seen.

    Seems like a ton of information on one map that is for sure. Nice pick up Bob!

    Thanks guys. You never know what may show up at a military show.
    About 4 years ago, a vet from the Gulf War came in and he had some US Greenbacks (I forget what denomination) and he had
    picked them up at some parade ground. Apparently Saddam had them fastened to the ground somehow and the Iraqi Troops had to march
    over them. He picked up 8 or 10 of them and brought them back and was trying to sell them. I took him down to Craig Luther and we talked him
    into making a display of them for a future keepsake. They might even be counterfeit.
    Has anyone else ever heard of this at a parade ground? I thought there was a website mentioning this but can't find it again.

    Bob, somewhere in my collection I have a small section of carpet with counterfeit $1 (or maybe $5) bills glued on it. It is a thin felt mat, and very worn/faded.

    They were available for sale at several locations in Baghdad early after the invasion, including the original 'bazaar' at BIAP (when it was still in the hanger and you could find regime embossed silver dinnerware or other Saddam marked items) and in some of the ad hoc souvenir shops at the entrance to the Crossed Sabers (conveniently located next to an Iraqi FPS checkpoint, whose members would discreetly offer guided 'tours' of the adjacent palace for a small fee).

    The parade ground comment may be true (I've also heard it was a carpet in a palace), but they may also simply be counterfeit souvenirs to make a buck off of American servicemembers. Either way, very cool item. I'll see if I can find a picture to dig up.

    Dug these out of the garage today. They're the same types of maps as yours, but obviously much older data (Soviet Union!)..

    I wonder how many times these types of maps are updated? Maybe only when a conflict arises??

    Bob, my two maps (dated 1988 and 1990) were issued to the original owner, in Baghdad, in 2004.
