    Another problem is batteries. Apparently dry cells in the 1940s were a
    little smaller in diameter. I had to laboriously strip the jackets from
    modern batteries to get them to fit.

    I put Duracel batteries in my A12.  One fitted into the bubble illuminator straight away.  The other wouldn't fit into the scale illuminayion battery housing until I took the Paxolin? liner out.  Then it fitted OK.  It's funny how WW2 zinc and cardboard batteries left in sextant boxes for all those years rarely seem to make a mess, but modern alkali batteries often leak if left in for some time, even though they're supposed to be leakproof.  DaveP
