Plath (Hamburg) Gyro sextant.

My model is incomplete though now working and will feature when I have more photographs


In the meantime Look Here for some notes on the activities of the firm PLATH

And a shot of one in decent condition Here

For all their beautiful workmanship, they were a rather old fashioned design, reputedly based on the Hughes Mk VIII

and when the Admiralty analysed a captured instrument they were not at all impressed, Look here for the report from the Admiralty Research Laboratory
