I have a list of geographical positions (given in "standard" degrees/minutes/seconds format) for numerous sites in Norway, taken from various english and german WWII-documents (ie: dated between 1940-1945). I have no information about what datum these positions are based on though, and using the positions with a current datum (WGS84) will lead to an error varying from a few metres to a couple of kilometres.
I have tried searching anywhere for information about what datum to use (or even any kind of "offset-values" to use), but no luck so far.
I can't find any suitable datums in CoordTrans either, so I thought it might be worth trying a question here: Does anyone have an idea of how I can set a correct datum for these positions (or suggestions to what datums english/ german military were most likely to use at the time), or maybe converting them to a current value for use with WGS84?
A couple of examples:
Position 1 (WGS84): E 16°28'33" / N 68°31'47"
Position 1 in a german 1945-document: E 16°29'06" / N 68°31'42"
Position 2 (WGS84): E 14°58'18" / N 67°58'15"
Position 2 in a german 1945-document: E 14°59'06" / N 67°58'07"
Position 3 (WGS84): E 4°57'18" / N 60°32'57"
Position 3 in an english 1944-document: E 4°57'30" / N 60°32'50"
Position 4 (WGS84): E 7°30'13" / N 60°36'07"
Position 4 in an english 1944-document: E 7°30'30" / N 60°36'08"
