  2. Nice stuff here!! I really like the picturess of Michels manequins!!!! But a boxcollector? That's a new term for me :)

So this meaned the navy approved the sextant, this was done on every Kriegsmarine item from field gear to navigational item.The department that did this for navigational items and clocks was the Deutsche Seewarte.
