Ww2 Raf Aircraft Compass Type P10 From A Lancaster Bomber In Original Condition For Sale
As can be seen from the photos, this compass is in well used condition. However, it has not been re-painted or, as sometimes happens, stripped and polished back to the brass thus removing important aspects of its history and it seems sound with no cracks, splits or other damage.
It appears to be in working condition, i.e. the delicate mechanism under the glass is complete and swings freely and points north. All the suspension springs are present as is the locking mechanism on the side. It does need a good clean so I am selling “as seen”.
The following is impressed on the compass: TYPE P10. No: 630/IT
