WW2 1942 Air Ministry HUSUN SEXTANT Belonging to Commodore NOEL BEVAN This is one of the lots I have that belonged to a very eminent naval officer, Surgeon Commodore Noel Bevan. To see a brief biog of his naval life please see below. This lot is a very desirable WW2 Air ministry boxed sextant made by Henry Hughes & Son. It appears to be in very good complete condition but please check over the photos. It is in a fitted wooden box which is solid and closes fine, though the hinge on one side looks to of been bent at some point and it does not sit flat leaving a gap between the lid and base at the rear of the box. It also contains a letter from Bevan which appears to be be an order for a brass plate to be made to be fitted to the Sextant, though I'm guessing it was never actioned upon. please see the many photos provided for details of design and condition. Great original condition. Marks commensurate with age.
This exceptional item will make a great display piece for nautical decor.
