Default The Military Compass

Lars posted some photos of a compass he owns recently on the ‘Binoculars’ thread. I thought in might be helpful to start one for the compass because of Lars commenting his compass needed refilling.

Lets start off with a word of caution. Not all compasses are ‘wet’, which is to say, filled with paraffin or kerosene to dampen the movement. Because of the inherent fire risk with such fluids, several models of compass were designed as ‘dry’, not needing a dampening fluid inside them. Might be worth getting a list of the available models to determine to what specifications they all were designed.
