RAF Pilots' low level map

Guys, a while back I saw a simplified map of the UK with important waypoints like "sally's wotsits" etc. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks everyone. I knew it would be a simple answer but my vague attempt at Google was a little to vague.

Sally's wotsits are about 10-15nm SW of Shawbury.

Sally's tits are on there. Just to the east of Creamie Corridor. If you were wondering what they actually are then look here.

Piss off Biggles is denoted by the green cross in North Wales. It may have been removed in the last 6 months though.

The magnet is cunningly placed to draw in the unwary (ie everybody) in the area into Shobdon.

Piss Off Biggles is here:

Yeah, but what do the magnet symbols really really signify

'PoB' is on the map - it is in the north-western corner of Wales. There is a green 'building' trapezoid, and the 'X' is partially hidden by that symbol.

Time Flies; that's the Malvern Hills, Sally's Tit's are Clee Hill (obvious by the Nats en route radar on top).

Apologies...you're not wrong! I couldn't remember if it was the Malverns or Clee Hills and as you can see from my post it was waaaaayyy past hometime so didn't have the will to check 1/2 mil before posting.

Cheers,

Background Noise is quite correct about Shobdon. The Malton Magnet is a strong metallic device buried deep underneath Malton that attracts solo Tucano students like flies to a poo. Similarly, the FlamingoLand avoid used to suck in scared LL solo studes.
