Good afternoon all.
I have just picked up a Kelvin Hughes sounding sextant. Ex Royal Australian navy. Last active check was in 1981. It has no shades just the two mirrors as made.
Looking for some info as to its use. I gather it is for plotting distance off and such like. A quick look on line did not reveal much.
It is sextant #21 to my collection and it is time I stopped collecting. Though I guess spread over 25 years it is none too bad.
Tis a time since I have been here !
Take it easy.
