The Francis Barker traditional military liquid prismatic compass is currently in service with many defence forces around the world and has been for many years. Built to meet the exacting specifications demanded by military users, it is the compass that officers of the British Army have used for generations

All models are made entirely in England and provide the ideal choice for the professional or recreational user. The design itself, developed over many years, is simple and yet highly accurate in use.

The five Tritium light sources allow all the compass functions to be used as normal by night as well.
