Product Description

A nice original WWII British Army 1944 dated Mk III Marching Compass.

It has its 1937 pattern webbing case that fits on to the officer’s webbing belt. The case is marked MECo and dated 1938. The compass is T G.Co LTD LONDON No.B 273464 with the Broad Arrow and MKIII. T.G. Co. Ltd. was the abbreviation used by ‘The Gramophone Company’. This firm merged with its subsidiary ‘His Master's Voice’ and with ‘Columbia Graphophone Co.’ in 1931 to become EMI (Electric & Musical Industries) who continued to use “The Gramophone Co.” trademark for various items, changing it for the War contracts to just T.G. Co. Ltd. However, in reality, F. Barker & Son apparently built these compasses since they all carry the B prefix to the serial number. T. G. Co. disappeared as soon as WW2 finished.

Size: 11.5 x 12 x 5 cm (4 ½ x 4 ¾ x 2 inches)
