A genuine WW2 fully functional! issue wrist compass as used by a number of units including the Airborne troops. This fully functional example is still liquid filled in good condition and clearly marked on the reverse (see photo's). This compass, official known as Compass, Wrist, Liquid-filled, was made by Taylor. The compass was usually seen worn on the wrist (duh!), but also over the sleeve, the shoulder loops, webbing, or at the ankle over the jump boots. Wrist compasses were used both by officers and enlisted men, unlike the lensatic compass, or marching compass, which was normally reserved for officers, NCO’s or men on a special mission.
Great and rare 100% original item from WW2 in functional condition!
