    The story is now so big that even Drudge links to it.

    Glad to see the Telegraph picked a decent sextant for the photo.  It looks like a Hughes Three Circle Mates just like mine but a bit younger.  I'd be surprised if it was 100% to do with GNSS vulnerability.  There might be a certain amount of maintaining the traditions of the service in it too, like getting the creases of your bell-bottomed trousers in the correct positions. http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/30090214 DaveP
