    Default WW1 compass, case and strap. 1916.

    Hi,

    Just though id share with you this 1916 dated, broad arrow marked, Verners MKVII compass i picked up today. The makers name is Cruchon & Emons London. This is complete with a 1916 dated case, maker is L.F & Co as well as leather carrying strap. On it has the name M.A Robinson, 60th rifles written on the front of the case. The compass is in really excellent working condition.

    Opinions welcome (sorry that the photo showing the markings on the compass is a bit fuzzy, camera decided it wouldn't focus correctly).

    Thanks

    Vicky

    Vicky,

    Very nice complete verniers pattern compass. If my memory serves 60th Rifles are the Kings Royal Rifle Corps.

    regards
