    David,

    Good for you!  Here are some links you will find interesting:

    - Kuno Gross's book on the Bagnold sun compass: 

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/3842337027/ref=cm_cr_arp_mb_bdcrb_top?ie=UTF8#aw-udpv3-customer-reviews_feature_div

    I haven't read it and can't vouch for it, but it looks interesting.  

    Ralph Bagnold founded Britain's Long Range Desert Group in WWII. Again, some links: 

    LRDG Preservation Society: http://www.lrdg.org/

    Imperial War Museum: https://www.iwm.org.uk/history/the-special-forces-that-helped-win-the-desert-battles-of-the-second-world-war

    Gavin Mortimer's book on the LRDG: https://www.amazon.com/Long-Range-Desert-Group-World/dp/1472819330

    A couple of articles:
