THE WWI CASED VERNER'S PATTERN OFFICER'S COMPASS OF 2ND LIEUT. HORACE BROADBENT, R.F.A.
** NEW ** WWI Verner's Pattern officer's compass dated 1917 with broad arrow marking, housed in its brown leather case with Wolfsky & Co. London 1918 stamps and personalised to 'H. Broadbent, R.F.A.' As Broadbent joined very late and didn't appear to be posted overseas, the compass is almost in untouched working order.
Horace Broadbent was commissioned into the Royal Field Artillery from Officer Cadet Units on 1 Mar 1918, Gazetted 9 Mar 1918.
