Cool Browsing

Just been browsing through my 'Nicholls's Concise Guide Volume 1....1947 Edition'........mmm...what the hell was 'Latitude By Meridian Altitude' ? wonder what to-days Apprentice's would think of it !!
Inside front cover, a photo of Ava Gardner.....that indicates that I took my studies seriously lol

Also 1947 Edition of 'Nicholls's Seamanship And Nautical Knowledge'
both 64 years old, a little bit 'tatty' like me.

Cheers....Glan
