RAF escape & evasion tunic button
RAF service dress tunic button by Buttons Ltd. of Birmingham. Developed by escape and evasion genius Christopher Clayton Hutton at MI9, this looks like a standard brass button but the back can be unscrewed to reveal a carefully concealed 0.5" 'four-hole' rotor compass. Virtually undetectable in normal use with an incredibly fine thread these buttons really are a work of art. The compass housed within is not a standard 0.5" escape and evasion compass but is actually significantly shallower to allow a better fit. Beware of fakes on the market with coarse threads and fitted with standard 0.5" compasses. The compass rotor 'sticks' occasionally but generally in very good condition. Guaranteed orignal.
