    Many thanks - I've just joined the forum hoping someone might just know where to find one of these manuals and there it was. I'd been resigned to waiting a long time and probably spending serious money for one. Very happy bunny at the moment!

    Thanks for the US Navigator's training manual - very interesting stuff. Does anyone have or know of an online source for similar British and German manuals/training books?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the manuals, Micdrow. The Horrido Schiessfibel was very entertaining - the German authors weren't very PC by today's standards, but they certainly knew how to get a message across to young men. I've never seen the concept of deflection aiming so well explained as on page 11!

    Thanks for the US Nav Manual.

    Is it possible to get a better resolution?

    Thanks,

    Micdrow, Thanks, great reading. Did you ever come across a manual for a WW2 Bendix Navy Aircraft Mark V sextant on that site?
    Have recently acquired one ( posted some photos in the tech section )

    Thanks again!!
