    More Movie Bits
    From: David Pike

    More bits from the movies produced in the immediate post WW2 period.
    Use of red and green for relative bearings
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J93GPUh-ta0 at about 18 seconds in.
    Use of pelorus
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKQAflZrXpU at 55 seconds.
    Use of sextant
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9taCV6VnaQ 12 seconds in.  I would guess that if anyone has the full copy of The Cruel Sea the sextant bit is longer.  Interestingly, although the Prince of Wales uses red and green bearings, the corvette uses 001 to 360 either true or magnetic.  I’ve never heard two double O used before.  O’s too like 4.  Today it would be two zero zero.  Dave
