    Re: Japanese Navy Type 2 bubble sextant
    From: Bill Morris
    Date: 2007 Dec 21, 11:13 -0800

    If it's the one that was recently sold on e-bay, Ronald, it looks very
    much like an American A6 or A8, in which case I can help with a manual
    or step by step photo instructions. Could you send me a picture to
    engineer{at}clear.net.nz?
    
    Regards,
    Bill
