Collecting Military Compasses


Plan marching compass mod. 1910

PLAN Ltd was a Swiss company. The company was founded in 1854.

Probably already before WWI, PLAN built the following marching compass (maybe) for the Swiss Army. It has a double graduation featuring twice the scale 0-32 (i.e. 6400 mils altogether).

PLAN Ltd also built mirror compasses for the U.S. armed forces during WWI. (source
