    Dear Clive,
    
    It's likely that some purists may scoff at your plastic sextant, but over
    many years I have found the Ebbco to be suitable and appropriate for
    small-craft work, in which no great accuracy is possible. A likely weakness
    is in the shades, which can deteriorate.
    
    I offer what information I have. I used to have a copy of their 16-page
    handbook, mentioned in those pages, but can no longer find it.
    
    The makers East Berks Boat Co, of Henley, no longer exist.
    
    Yours, George.

    I am a little confused as my name is "Clive".
    I bought an ebbco sextant on ebay which was said to be not working but I
    got it working.  Now I want to know how to use it and hoping to find a
    manual some where.  Can you help me at all?
    
    Cheers
    
    Clive Cooper
