    Astro Navigation at HMS Collingwood
    From: Bill Lionheart
    Date: 2018 Nov 11, 13:16 +0000

    I wonder if anyone knows what they still teach the RN about astro
    navigation. (I am believe I am right that the RAF and RN still use the
    terminology Astro rather than Celestial?) . I am fairly sure it is
    taught at HMS Collingwood and I found this interesting article about
    Lieutenant Jon Sutcliff pioneering the use of a planetarium as a
    teaching aid.

    It might of course be secret!
