RAF / AM ESCAPE AND EVASION MINIATURE COMPASS
Possibly the rarest of all the ‘conventional’ M I9 escape and evasion compasses as used within the ‘smoking pipe’.
This miniature compass was concealed within the bowl of the pipe.
Compass is just over 7 mm in diameter. Swivel wheel is in excellent working order.
The glass / perspex cover is a little loose.
(Item new to the market obtained from the son of an RAF sergeant charged with the issue of escape aids to air crew prior to operations.
This was ‘brought’ home and given with other such items as part of a Christmas gift).
This is a SOLD Item.
It is currently on view in Mons Military Antiques ‘Archive Pages’ of previously stocked and sold items....For items currently on sale from Mons’ go to the ‘On-Line Shop’ pages !
