Escape compass hidden in comb
Wayne Herrington from Australia sent me a picture of an extraordinary escape compass he found. He bought a plastic hair comb with a hidden compass off an RAAF veteran. He had a dentist’s x-ray photo made of the comb showing the same type of swinger compass you can see on this web site molded into it. Such combs and other common toiletry and personal items are very rare. Unless you buy it from someone who knows what they’ve got, it’s an item that’s almost impossible to locate. Thanks to Wayne for wanting to share this!
Got my grandfather’s comb with escape compass in it; he was a RAAF Flight Lieutenant who then later served in the Pathfinders with the RAF during WWII.
