    Question random find - a compass

    Iv recently found this compass and wondered if anyone here would be able to shed a little light on it. It was made by T. Dent & co London . it has No. 54478 stamped on the rim as well as the No.1085 shown in the pic attached. it has an eight inch diameter and is housed in a mahogany hinged box. Any information appreciated.

    It looks like a British Ship's compass. Any more markings on it?
