Good find - in more ways than one ;)

I like the comment about a misspelled name being a sign of laziness as well as stupidity. I guess they meant people's names and not place names ::)

That explains why we have so many place names in the logs starting with Bluie ;D



I found https://www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar/USN/ref/USN-NAVEXOS_P-474.html some time ago.
It wasn't any help at the time, but I just looked and it does include some of your locations, so maybe it will help for other countries too...
(I have found a lot of useful information under https://www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar ;))
