RAF escape and evasion shaving brush

RAF escape and evasion shaving brush

Code: 10379


1943 dated, brown bakelite shaving brush containing an MI9 escape compass.

On the base of the brush there is a war department arrow and the manufacturers name - lenc, plus a 1943 date. Unscrewing this base from the brush, reveals an escape compass fixed into it. Originally, this would have had a shaving soap stick covering, so concealing it. 

The brush is in a very good used condition. The compass is in a working condition but it has a crack in the glass (see photos).

For further reading on the brush and other escape items, see Phil Froom's excellent book, Evasion and Escape devices (see last photo).

Due to ongoing issues with European Customs, this item is NOT FOR SALE to the EU.
