World War II (1939-1945)

Cocktail Cat heading and logo
A vintage military World War 2 Mark III compass by T.G. Co. Ltd dated 1942, with a brass outer & mother-of-pearl dial.
SIZE The main circular body of the compass is just under 6cm in diameter by around 2.5cm deep.
MARKS The base of the compass is marked 'T.G.Co Ltd London No B187228', '1942 MK III' and with the military broad arrow.
Generally good vintage condition.
There is a little scuffing & scratching to the brass case, and most of the black lacquer or coating has worn away from the outside. The hinge is good, the clasp closes firmly & securely and the bezel turns freely when released.
  There are a couple of very, very tiny nibbles to the edge of the glass in the lid, but there are no visible cracks. There is a mark near the centre of the glass in the bezel, but I'm not sure whether it is a small chip or just something stuck to the underside of the glass.
  The inner dial or face spins freely and seems to be in working order. However, there does not appear to be any liquid at all inside the compass and there is some sort of creamish white substance around the edge of the dial under the glass - I don't know whether this is the seal which has deteriorated or some kind of residue left when the liquid leaked or dried out. There are also one or two small pieces of this substance loose within the compass, and there is a little discolouration to the centre of the dial.
