Yes, that is my lesson for the day. Thank you NR. Just had a quick reccy and have done some sums just so I'm clear that each "mil"? really is roughly 1 metre apart at a 1 km distance.

Just one thing, is having 6400 graduations on something that small as practical as you make it sound? The lay-man in me says that might be too difficult to read.


No sir its just as easy but far more accurate, in most cases you actually navigate using only 3200 degrees, until you start doing back bearings and triangulation figures.

Oddly enough me being a horder, if anyone is interested I have a lovely A4 graphic map reading aid memoir they can have a copy of.
Unfortunately I dont know or unerstand the technicalities of posting a down loadable version into this thread, so if anyone wants a copy they can downloadf, print off and laminate they will have to U2U me with an E mail addy.

Try asking Alexander Graham Bell to see if Little willy is going to the Ballroom Blitz before The Sixteens use up all the Oxygen.

Just tried to upload a link to my flicker acct so people could download that navigation aid, but every link I try comes up as not working, sorry folks.

Firstly, great thread.

Having 6400 subdivisions may sound a little unwieldy, however a prismatic compass with a sighting aid overcomes this and allows you to take very accurate bearings, or to march on a very specific point on the horizon.

Having said that, I only encountered mils once I was in the military, and had been using degree-marked Silva compasses since I was young, so for ease of use and over navigation friendly terrain I use degrees, and resort to mils when the higher accuracy is needed.
