Escape Compass - Collar Stud

Escape Compass - Collar Stud

Code: SOLD-1312

SOLD

An ingenious method of hiding a compass inside a collar stud that could have been worn by many aircrews with their RAF shirt/collar. Made using a cheap gilt metal collar stud with integral compass pivot and rotor. The glass top would have originally been painted white to hide the compass beneath but this has been scraped off. Unusual compass design in this one. Interesting to note that many of the studs used for this purpose were actually purchased from Woolworth. When downed in enemy territory this could help the unfortunate airman back to safety. Very good condition. Stock code E16542.
