Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to request, under the Freedom of Information Act, a list of the hypothesised targets (and longitude/latitude or OS grid references of each) that were used in the 1980 Operation Square Leg home defence exercise and the estimated megatonnage of each target.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Owen Blacker

The MOD claim not to have the information either, and directed me to the National Archive. So my FOI request to Kew is here: http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/op...
