    Jan,
    
    Your last message seems to be contradictory - or I misunderstand. Did you mean "1928" and "WWI"?
    
    Also, do you know whether and how the R.N. made sure that the quality of the 
    instruments was adequate? Did the officers have to buy through the Navy or 
    buy a certain type, brand, model, get it certified,...?

    officers that they hade bought a sextant as their personal property, 
    otherwise they could not be assigned to a ship. Only after WW I Navy ships 
    started becoming the sextants from Navy stores.
