2011/04, Trials with the Sun-Compass

To find proof for the assumptions we made on the use of the Bagnold Sun-Compass we went to Tunisia (Libya was “off limits” due to the ongoing civil war). The little instrument worked well and we could get photos which we wanted to use in the planned publication about the sun-compass.

2010/10, Looking for Almasy

Already during the research for “Incident at Jebel Sherif” the idea came up to launch another big project about the missions of Almasy during WW2. Next to looking for other traces of the Special Forces in the desert of Egypt we tried to re-trace Almasy’s route of 1942.
