British officers at sun compass practice, November 1942.

Photograph, World War Two (1939-1945), 1942.

The British Army sometimes used sun compasses as, unlike magnetic varieties, they were unaffected by the magnetic influence of vehicle metal or that of the large iron ore deposits found in many desert regions.

From an album of 104 photographs compiled by Lieutenant D R Molloy, 10/16th Punjab Regiment, India, September 1942 to December 1944 (c).
