RAF / SOE Button Compass
Brown bakelite button with integral magnetised section. Small dots on the reverse of the button indicate North and South. When suspended by a thread the button could be used by an evading or escaping airman to head for neutral territory. Another example of the ingenuity of Christopher Clayton Hutton and his team at MI9. Some soiling that will almost certainly clean off, otherwise in excellent used condition. Stock code E19795.
