Silva Compass - Reversed Polarity

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by Hobo-Ken, Apr 16, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My Silva compass has gone mad - for some reason the red needle suddenly started pointing South instead of North. All very well, but I was on a walking holiday at the time, in dense forest in a remote area...it turned out to be rather a long day...

    Any ideas how I can turn it back round again? Or is it one for the bin?
     
  2. Someone asked the exact same question a couple of weeks ago. Use the search button up top :D
     
  3. If you look closer you can see uranus
     
  4. Tried the search but couldn't find anything. Will have another go.

    Where I would find Uranus in a Silva compass eludes me however. Or why I would wish to. It's only a basic one and there's nothing about planets in the instructions. :D
