    Default Navigating Lancasters in WW II by Peter Hoare.

    From time to time, I consult this paper. It is superb. I obtained it from the author and we exchanged several emails. Peter Hoare was a Navigator on Lancasters, later 1944 – 1945 with 5-Group. Note that 5-Group had their own “Pathfinder Squadrons” and Peter was a navigator on Pathfinders. It is an outstanding paper and well worth a review. I exchanged several emails with Peter Hoare while he was alive. I can email the pdf to those interested.

    Jim, I also have the paper and have found it most enlightening. If one is interested in what is now archaic navigation it is a treasure. I do have to say that Pathfinder navigation was different from that of the Main Force, but, nonetheless, when read against something like this: https://onenightindecember.wordpress...s-perspective/ it adds another dimension.

    Terry: I was looking at that website again last night. Someone had directed me to it, perhaps it was you. Stunningly thorough!
