Robert Darrieumerlou found unnumbered cross, between bm001 and 002 and the altitude of 245 meters: see this webpage.
An intermediate cross, ± 100m below bm002, size 23x23cm
Note the alignment of cross, rock and the left house in the deep.

Photo provided by Jacques Koleck (in febr. 2014) who told me that this cross was already discovered by Robert Darrieumerlou.

Some directions by Jacques:
- height (according to his altimeter) 235m
- the rock is not located on the ridge itself but on the eastern hillside
- it's ± 15m E of an enormous boulder (7-8m) which is visible from bm002.

Charles Darrieu sent me in 2011 these pictures, showing  two ancient delimitation crosses at the foot of bm002.

The Procès-Verbal mentions one existing cross without number. I couldn't find these ones. I'm surprised they are so visible on these pictures.


But there's even a third cross, discovered by Robert Darrieumerlou in 2013. But you can see this third cross far better on his own picture on this webpage. It seems so visible that one wonders how other searchers could miss it (but I didn’t find any of them).

Charles Darrieu sent me in 2011 this pictures, showing an ancient delimitation-cross close to bm007.

The Procès-Verbal mentions one existing cross without number. I couldn't find this one.

Jacques Koleck confirmed in 2013 its existence, adding that it's 6 meters SW of bm007.

An intermediate unnumbered marker between bm011 and 012.
On top there's a cross.

Photo supplied by Serge Poncet, made on may 3, 2012

Jacques Koleck added in febr. 2014 that the hillside between bm011 and the the parking lot has been trimmed. Both bm011 and this intermediate marker are well visible now from the parking.

This is an old picture, captured from the documentary "L'homme de la frontière" on Jean Sermet. Date unknown (60-ties or 70-ties, I guess).

It shows the Col d'Ibardin, looking NWW. The demarcation -line had become unclear on this  plateau of tarmac. The white spot was painted as an first attempt to fix that.
Perhaps it's the spot of bm012, I don't know.

Picture of bm012 on its original spot.

Photographed in the years 2000-2003. Source: "The Murgoi-files" of Jesús Murueta Goikoetxea

In 2005 it was removed because of construction works, later replaced at a platform as my own pictures show.
