    Re: German navigational notation

    I have figured out where I learned to use this notation, H.O. 214 uses
    "a lamda" for assumed longitude. It also uses "delta" for the
    declination, LHA, and latitude adjustments, although the normal use of
    the table was to just do the "delta d" adjustment. The other adjustments
    are only used if working from a D.R. The "a lambda" notation is
    continued in H.O. 229.
