    Default RAF Escape Safety Pin compass

    Has anyone any illustrations or documentation supporting the use of magnatised safety pins for escape and evasion. I understand these pins were sent into pow camps along with many other devices. The attached link is the only one where I have been able to find any information. I assumed these were hung by thread to indicate North as per the simple bar compass.
    Safety pins, magnets for guidance
