Compass corrector by unknown zoom

Compass corrector

An unprovenanced relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. This is possibly the magnetic corrector for a compass. The item is a rectangular iron bar with grooves cut across both sides near the end. It has a Royal Naval Museum, Greenwich number (9) or (6) painted on. The 1913 catalogue gives Franklin Room, case 5, number 9 as 'Parts of a ship's compass.'
