Just ordered a copy of the Sextant Book.
My first contact with a sextant was with Qantas as an apprentice where one of my tasks was to poke the sextant through the roof on the Lockheed Super Connies they had and carry out some checks which escape me now and the driftsight through the floor to perform some checks. I think that is where the curiosity began. Qantas was still called Qantas Empire Airways when I signed up.
