UAF movement & convoys

|Summary Info from SMM reports|
Notes: It was a difficult task to ascertain the information in a succint manner due to a mismatch of geographical place names, typos & vagueness of location or direction of UAF convoys. In fact it was impossible to put a date to the convoys, since 2 of reports did not give any date. So I put the date of the SMM report as the date for the convoys, however this isn't a real valid date for the actual movement of some of the convoys.
On a number of ocassions, little information was actually specified by the SMM as to a direction of a convoy or its final destination - here are some extracts from their report:
" SMM observed a pre-assembled", or "The SMM monitored the convoy as far as a location described by the convoy commander as the end-point."
"The SMM intends to re-visit the location..."
"The SMM followed the convoys to separate locations described by the convoy commanders as the end-points."
Just to get an idea of the type of information used from the SMM:
