The Royal Navy’s famous submarine bridge compass first introduced in 1909. The design allowed for minimising deviation and because of this it could be closely corrected, and became affectionately known as “Faithful Freddie” to generations of British Submariners
The compass was made in a compact size to allow it to be passed upward through the conning tower hatch when the submarine operated on the surface, and then back down when she submerged
A must have piece for any avid collector or nautical enthusiast
