    Re: Replacement horizon mirror for a Kelvin Hughes sextant.

    Is the Husan the same as the Kelvin Hughes?

    Hello Francis

    You decide.  Below are snaps of my 1941 Mates and the chap's 1963 KH.  It looks like they tried to give the KH a more 1960s colour scheme, but it looks like the same casting and numbering sequence.  It also looks like they changed from brass with a silver? platinum? inlay to a newer material. 

    Notice the callibration.  Was my near perpect 1941 arc scale a one off, a big fib, or was the cutting machine beginning to get worn by 1963?  And the mermaids don't seem to have got a day older.  Maybe mermaids don't.  DaveP
