WWII Compass

WWII Compass
Item# C0014

Product Description

With bare-bones instrumentation as their only means of guidance, early navigators rarely knew the exact course in which they were headed. Utilizing basic octants, astroblades, and the alignment of stars in the night sky was helpful, though a more sophisticated tool was needed to emancipate these sailors from following coastal courses. This World War II compass was just such a tool, and you donít even have to have a doctorateís degree or WiFi to operate it.

Dimensions: 5.5 x 2 cm, 2.25 x .75 in.
