what sort of briefcase is this?

Hello,

I have seen this sort of briefcase before but can't find the purpose of it... Is it used by the flight engineer?

Best regards, Marcel

Hello

The resemblance is striking so I guess you are right. Thank you for the swift and conclusive pointer to the sextant !

Warm greetings from Venlo, the Netherlands,

Marcel
