If anything happened to a sextant it was your own fault as they were each officer's personal property. The company did not provide any themselves, although I think it became compulsory to provide 2 per ship from later in the 70s

There was a chair in the wheelhouse part of the bridge but that was reserved for captains & pilots only. Woe betide anyone else found sitting in it!

Never leave the sextant loose over the chart room tableˇˇ the Master used to warn meˇ

A proper navigators station.

...and the radar with access holes for the hands to reach inside with a "fat"stick and draw plottings on the screen. I did that still in 1984 and my last time was sometime in 2001-02
