    Just wondering if anyone had to use cel-nav for their work or emergency in OUR lifetime

    ​.

    ​The Long Range Desert Group used celestial navigation to keep themselves found in the Libyan desert du​ring WWII. There is extensive literature about that and about how Ralph Bagnold, founder of the LRDG, used cel-nav when exploring the Libyan desert before WWII.
    ​I used cel-nav to keep track of the progress of our group as we explored the Libyan desert some ten years or so ago. An account of that can be found at:
