I have an original Class A Sextant made by J.W.Ray and Co
It is engraved on the scale and on the lid of the sextant with the following
Presented to J.C.MANSELL (Senior Cadet Captain) BY THE MANAGERS OF THE WHITE STAR LINE 1928.
It is fantastic condition with original black lacquer - all telescopes, sun shades and key all in a fitted box with the National Physical Laboratory (Teddington) certificate mounted on the inside lid.
I am looking for any information on J.C.Mansell and the ship he served on.
Any ideas on how to research his history.
Many thanks
Paul and Kirsty
