Title Military prismatic compass, WW1
Nationality British
Period 1918
Sold

This is a standard Great War issue item, of the dry variety rather than the oil-filled type. It has a broad arrow mark on the base, indicating government issue, with the date 1918. It is made of brass and has a blackened finish for war service, which is somewhat worn on the outside.

There is with it a brown leather case with the broad arrow stamp and 'C&R.BRINSLEY. // 1916.' Only a small portion of the leather strap remains.

All screws are present and correct, but the hard rubber ring on the base has started to decompose and about 30% has fallen away.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Received the mannlicher steyr knife bayonet today, very pleased with it and compliments my rifle perfectly. Many thanks for your speedy delivery.
