Still is really, though now they call them recommended routes and there was/is a warning about unexploded ordnance.
Remember filing them as 2/O mid-70's, best I can do.

I remember a question on my original US third mate's license exam regarding the Nemedri. Does anyone know where the name "nemedri" comes from?

It looks like :

Northern European and Mediterranean Routing Instructions.

(Routes swept for mines). Google NEMEDRI and "War Risks". First up is ectract from RINA.

Mike,

You have managed to do what everyone else failed - promote me beyond my level of competence. Context suggested war risks, Google did the rest.
