WWI cloth escape map of the Western Front?

WWI cloth map

We recently cleared our uncle's house and found this item. We do not know how we came by it. Some internet research, and contact with the Guardian archives, has led us to believe it to be an escape map, provided to airmen of the Western Front in WWI. But we could be putting two and two together and making five. It could even be something pertaining to the Second World War.
