Message Text: Hoping somebody can help me or can tell me where to try next on some research I am doing. I need some advice on ocean navigation during WW2 when there was nothing like GPS and radio silence had to be maintained. I know about Mercator, whole circle track, etc but I need to know how accurate dead reckoning was in practice. How often were fixes taken and how far off track was typical. If you can help or know somebody who knows somebody who did it for real I would be grateful for a contact.

(Long Story) but served chiefly as 2nd Steward. I served on both Queens, Elizabeth & Mary.Lamport & Holt.T&J Harrison. Union Castle. A few One Trippers as I call them,finishing with 6 years with Shell Tankers.They were undoubtedly the greatest years of my life,only leaving due to circumstances beyond my control,if I could turn back the clock I would never leave. But right now I am a 61 year old partially disabled wreck,heart and lungs on the blink and to top it all just diagnosed with the Big C. So here I am looking for any old shipmate I may have sailed with.If any of you Gentlemen may have served with the mentioned companies during said dates, please drop us a line.Look forward to hearing from you.
