    I've read that in his 1942 work Ageton used a different method for
    azimuth, so I assume that's why you need R.

    My father-in-law was a navigator during WWII.  He the first aboard his ship, and was one of the first period, to use Ageton.  He purchased the book with his own money and started using it.  His captain thought that it was nice to have another system to backup whatever they used normally aboard ship (I'm not sure what that was).  Just before he died he gave me all of his books including Bowditch, Ageton and others.  I don't use them but they occupy a place of honor on my fireplace mantle.
