1636127703Code 7110 RAF compassPocket compass used during the First World War by RAF officers of chromed brass in the shape of an onion clock. The compass has a lid with snap closure with release button inside the ring. Four-winds compass card complete with goniometric circle for calculating horizontal angles. Excellent condition, fully functional. Diameter 4.5 cm - 1.77 inches, thickness 1.8 cm - 0.7 inches.

The first hints in Europe on the use of instruments using magnetic fields for orientation are dated back to the late twelfth century, especially thanks to the knowledge brought by merchants and sailors after contacts with the Arabs: we find hints in the work by Alexander Neckam "De nominibus utensilium" and in the works by Guyot de Provins, where the magnet is called "sailor's friend". Even the inventory of a Sicilian ship of 1200's, the San Nicolò, refers to the presence on board of a magnet and a "bussola di ligno", that is a wooden compass.
