Thank you, Francis, for sending your beloved Bygrave slide rule so promptly. The reason for the confusion in previous posts is because I use a different name on eBay!
It was securely packed and, upon opening, I decided that it is such a gem that I will not touch it until I have bought new white cotton gloves. Then I will restrict my use to a few careful calculations and post a review in due course.
I feel honoured to now possess this treasure and pleased that it remains within the NavList community as you so wished. I will be delighted to respond to any posts requesting detailed information on this particular example.
My best wishes to you. I trust that you will be successful in selling your Fuller slide rule and Astra IIIB sextant.
