Got this compass given to me, but what a fickle, there's no 360 degrees on bezel only what I presume is mils, 64 in total, 16 in each 1/4 section of compass ie. E-16. Obviously military use, suppose if I had a howitzer could be OK. When you peek through the bezel, inside are a lot more measurements & mainly in degrees. Not that useful to me! Angry

If it is a military one it'll also have the 'radioactive' logo on it, as its filled with tritium. lets you read it in total darkness for oh, about the next 100 years Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

One of the best compasses you can get, espacially if free. Learn to use it and you'll appreciate how good it is.
