Ceremonial Maps   

These Linkup maps were furnished by Jim Straight, PhD, PE, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico. Jim's father was a WWII Company Commander, 654th Engineering Topographical  Battalion. His Company was called on to produce a pair of different maps for the Linkup ceremony.  The maps were very fancy with gold leaf on the borders.  Just before the ceremony, it was discovered the Russian General's name was misspelled.  The error was quickly corrected but there was not enough gold leaf for his name on all of the maps.  Only a few were fully corrected.  Jim's father kept the prototype (no gold leaf).
