Recommended Posts

Hi, can any one tell me what this is, yes I know its a wrist/ arm compass!

On the back a broad arrow

then Ref. no. 6B/2593

Ser. No. 6835 B/56


I can't seem to find anything out about it.

Many thanks to you all

6B is a give away that it is RAF as it is the Section prefix for RAF Vocabulary items that includes "aircraft navigation equipment, accessories & unit servicing spares"



Many thanks for that, the strap does seem to be a long one so I was thinking it went over the suit. does /56 indicate that it is 1956 or that is WW2 as it was sold to me?

Either way I am happy as its in very good order !


Thanks for your answers, its very helpfull.
