57) A really very nice original WW1 British officers Verner’s Pattern compass and issue case. The compass is in excellent working order. it retains much original finish and is in very nice condition, The dial stop slide button to the side doesn’t seem to work? it moves freely but doesn’t lock the dial. The side button does however stop the dial. The base shows that it was made by Short & Mason Ltd London and dates it to 1912. The case is again in lovely condition. It has nice clear markings and 1913 date. a really very nice example.
