    In this auction you can bid for

    A British Army WW1 Officer's compass in pocket watch style.

    The compass is used but in good condition.

    Engraved 'Dennison of Birmingham VI 12369 1918'
    along with the War Department military arrow on the lid.
    The full hunter case is in ok condition.
    The original bevelled glass crystal is ok,
    and covers an attractive pivot floating dial.
    In full working order, including the automatic transit lock.
    It is a nice example of these charismatic WW1 compasses,
    which are becoming very scarce in good condition.


    This is what the compass looks like:
