70) A very nice original WW1 “The Magnapole” compass. A private purchase item for British officers. This one is in its original leather Sam Brown case with belt loop. The compass is in excellent order and works well. The lid and base show minor surface wear to the black finish from going in and out of the case during its service. The case is in lovely soft supple condition and the original to the compass. The rear is hand marked in ink “W.F.Dawson”. the top is impressed “W.F.Dawson. 16 W Yorks”. A nice researchable item.
