    165165 almost all of these maps remain in copyright for another few years, so
    166166 we couldn't put them online.</p>
    167 <p>If you do have free higher resolution images of either of Scotland or
    168  Northern Ireland (eg the 1920s Popular Edition, or the War Office Editions),
    169  then we would be very interested. Do please contact us if you have such
    170  maps.</p>
     167<p>The Ordnance Survey did release some updates to the Popular Edition
     168 of Scotland in the 1940s, which had the National Grid over-printed on.
     169 them. (The War Office also published similar versions). While the grid
     170 isn't parallel with the main map, it is possible to work with (just a
     171 little bit more work). We don't have very many of these sheets though,
     172 so we would love to hear from anyone who does.</p>
    171173<p>If you would like to be notified when we do get out of copyright 1 inch
    172174 to the mile maps of Scotland and Northern Ireland, please
    173175 <a href="scotlandAndNI.html">register your interest</a>.</p>
