"Names in this gazetteer appear on AMS 1:25,000 (AMS M841 series and AMS M842 series) maps of West Germany ... The M842 series (Bavaria 1:25,000) will eventually be converted to M841 sheet lines. Therefore, names appearing on present M842 sheets have been listed with reference to the anticipated M841 sheet layout and marked with an asterisk. A separate gazetteer exists for interim use with the M842 series. [Gazetteer to AMS 1:25,000 maps of Bavaria (Germany) 1954]"
