RAF /SOE escape and evasion brass fly button, two piece compass.

These standard looking battle dress brass buttons combine together to produce an ingenious compass. Developed by Clayton Hutton and his team at M.I.9. the compass was designed to help escaping airmen or agents evade capture.

One button has a small central spike which allows the second button to freely balance and rotate on it. The small illuminous dots signify North & South.

In a very good working condition.
