navigation and accessibility - is the back button enough?

hey all,

I am hoping someone can help me figure out if 3.2.3 Consistent
Navigation applies here.

A section of a site has a landing page with five links on it -

"About us" is the landing page, and it has links to

  * who we are
  * what we do
  * mission
  * values
  * history

Click any of these links and you get to a page with *no* links to any of
the other "About us" pages. The only way to go through all five links is
to click the back button and go back and forth.

Does this count as inconsistent navigation? It's really missing
navigation. Navigational mechanisms are NOT being repeated on multiple
Web pages. Is there some other WCAG guideline that applies? Is this
actually ok?!

thanks so much!
