true, but that research is only available due to the great work of Tighar, so am sure us as a group should be able to gather more facts i.e relating to Gallagher sextant

Gallagher's last effects are listed here http://tighar.org/Projects/Earhart/Archives/Documents/Gallagereffects.html Near end of list they list "1 sextant" and in parenthesis following that it says "on "Viti".  There is not brand name, serial number, nor box listed and as detailed as the effects list was if it was boxed I believe it would say something in the manner of "1 sextant in wood case".

BTW:  Viti is a 1939 Vice-Regal Yacht for Sir Harry Luke http://www.nzmaritime.co.nz/viti.htm and also the ship that Gallagher was aboard when he became what ended up as "fatally" ill; which raises the question ??? what happened to the sextant?

LTM,

Don

As I recall (too lazy to double check) MacPherson gave it to the captain of the Viti.
