Product Description

A very nice condition 1943 dated Canadian Army Officer's Prismatic Mk.III Marching Compass by the Canadian Kodak Company, with its leather marching case, working condition.

Some Mark III compasses (see Barker) are marked on the bottom CKC/C (link to pic). The first three letters stand for the abbreviated maker's name Canadian Kodak Company (s. pic at right). The meaning of the uppercase C is unknown - maybe simply ... compass 1932 - Mk III Liquid Prismatic Compass
The compass has a brass body and is finished in a black paint. The glass on the lid has a sighting hairline which is perfect. The compass has a mother of pearl card which spins freely and is marked in degrees around the circumference with 10 degree intervals. The card has north highlighted with an arrow in luminescent paint. The glass in the compass is also in excellent condition and free of damage. The glass can be rotated with a tightening lock on the side. The prismatic viewer allows a clear view of the dial, whilst sighting. The underside of the body is engraved CKC/C (Broad Arrow) 16173C MK.III 1943. The leather case is stamped with the War Department broad arrow above a T. We are unaware of the meaning of the T, but it is rare to see. The leather strap has been repaired. Condition overall is good.

Size: 9 x 10.5 x 4.5 cm (3 ½ x 4 1/8 x 1 ¾ inches)
