    Re: Symposium at Greenwich

    I am attaching the photos I took of the HR-2 in case these are of help to you. Notice that the zig-zag runs in the opposite sense from that on the HR-1.

    Gary,
    I am trying to compile the complete HR instructions
    text from the cursor tube.
    Do you have photos covering the entire text?

    These two posts have pictures of HR-1 and HR-2
    German copies of the Bygrave which are kept at the
    NMM.

    The prigramme for the symposium at the National
    Maritime Museum, Greenwich, has recently appeared
    on the NMM website. It will be on May 6th (pm) and
    May 7th. It's titled "A sense of direction" and is
    intended to give broad-ranging coverage of History
    of Navigation.
    
    The website of the NMM itself can be found at
    http://www.nmm.ac.uk/
    
    A bit of searching within it brings up the
    following-
    
    Booking Form (which is also attached) at-
    http://www.nmm.ac.uk/upload/pdf/Booking_form_-_A_S
    ense_of_Direction.pdf
    
    A listing of the symposium programme at-
    http://www.nmm.ac.uk/researchers/conferences-and-s
    eminars/senseofdirection
    
    and a list of abstracts at-
    http://www.nmm.ac.uk/upload/doc/Navigation_Symposi
    um_abstracts.doc
    
    There are several names there which will be
    familiar to Navlist members. On the Thursday
    morning (6th), before lunch (after which the
    symposium starts) two visits are scheduled-
    
    1. Jonathan Betts, the museum's horologist, fresh
    from repairing and restarting Harrison's H1
    chronometer, will be dismantling his H2 timepiece
    for its first overhaul since Rupert Gould revived
    it in the 1920s. He will be doing the job in
    public view, brave fellow.
    
    2. Tthere will be group visits to the Museum's
    off-site backup store. I've been there twice
    before, and can confirm that it's full of all
    sorts of interesting goodies that haven't found a
    place in the main museum. For example, Geoffrey
    Kolbe has reported on inspecting there some MHR1
    German versions of the Bygrave.
    
    These visits, limited in numbers,  are likely to
    be quickly booked up, so you are advised not to
    delay.
    
    I expect to see a good half-dozen Navlist members
    there, with a garnishing of wives. There will be a
    reception, drinks provided, on the Thursday night,
    after which there will probably be an ad-hoc
    wandering-off together by participants to a local
    hostelry for a meal (at least, that's what
    happened at the last such event, two years ago). I
    wonder if an informal gathering of the Navlist
    participants on another evening would be welcome?
    It rather depends on who expects to be in
    Gteenwich, when. The best time seems perhaps to be
    the Wednesday evening; what do others suggest?
    
    George.
