Nav article by Lyle in the Hill Skills section of the latest edition of TGO mag.
Good plug for the UNM and mentions in the Contributors pen portraits his Royal Institute of Navigation award for writing the UNM.

I know that Lyle has posted before about there being twice as much copy for his book, which the publishers cut out. If this article is some of that removed copy, then it should definitely have been the in the UNM, it is the best review of the compass and how it works that I have read. Even to an old hand like me it has made me rethink how and why I use my compass.

If you have not got the copy of TGO, go out and buy one now.

OS History of Mapping
« Reply #36 on: November 24, 2012, 05:47:30 PM »
Ignoring the maxim of the brilliant Niels Bohr: Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future! I agreed to write a piece for Trail Magazine, about the future of maps to be included in a ‘History of Mapping’ supplement they were writing in association with OS (Ordnance Survey).

My copy of Trail (January 2013) arrived this morning and WOW, it is a 32 page special, that is the best I have seen to date about OS – worth buying (with the exception of my predictions).

Dundee Mountain Film Festival 2014

My old pal Alfie Ingram, former Chairman of the MRCofS, asked if I could help out at the Dundee Mountain Film Festival this year, November 28 & 29 (Fri & Sat) and I will be presenting my work on Mountain Survival. My presentation will include the first showing of a film trailer for a TV series I have been working on :)
