Without my having to dig out my references out, is the sign of the northing

the northing values. To do otherwise is most illogical, to say the least.
Also: "westing?" Is that positive also?
My, my, I'm getting the idea that being "down under" has drained all the
blood from the head to the other end. But the Ausies don't seem to have
