Thanks to Dizzy I have a new (well, old!) Silva type 54 compass, and it's brilliant!

Thanks very much! Actually found some boxes using bearings today!

Thanks for the link James&Jenny I have just ordered one! Such good prices. I did Froogle them but even Froogle didn't show anything that cheap :D

I hope someone is getting commission for all the new compasses purchased - because of you lot, we have now splashed out on a new Expedition 54 (at £52.99), received yesterday!! :) Really looking forward to using it - why does the weekend take so long to arrive??!!

Many thanks for all the useful info. about compasses.

Hope to see some of you out and about on the Moors (we're trying Cosdon Hill on Sunday, as it's close to Mum in Okehampton).

Regards,
Howard n Sue

Watch out for Ticks on Cosdon Hill - I picked up lots from there last time I was out - none attached themselves but it was not a pleasant experience! I carry a dustpan brush in the car now - so I can have a good brush off before carrying unwanted visitors on a journey back to North Devon. :D
