RAF Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A

A very clean example stores ref. 6A/1248 and complete with its original transit box. Both the instrument and box are date marked 1944. The compass card moves freely although the compass oil has a small air bubble in it. The sighting prism is perfect and whilst for sale as a collectable, the instrument appears to be in good working order. These compasses were used in flight for taking bearings when the fixed type of observer's compass could not be used. Overall length 9" (21cm)
