If you are using Potlatch you can use Ctrl B I think to add an OS 1:25
source tag. In JOSM I'd make it clearer that's it OOC. So perhaps "OOC OS
1_25k" which also gets rid of the colon which might be confused with a
namespace separator to some in the XML

All the sheets I current have available for Devon and Cornwall are now
uploaded. I have a couple more for Somerset which will appear soon.
