A genuine WW2 fully functional! issue wrist compass as used by a number of units including the Airborne troops. This fully functional example is 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 patina on the buckles; untouched for 75 years.
Unique 100% original item for your US WW2 collection; will for sure be a centerpiece in your collection!
