    Re: antique compass revival - questions.
    From: Aubrey O?Callaghan

    Going thru some unread emails.
    The agent for Sestrel compasses in UK is:
    BPSC Marine Services
    171 Bodycoates road
    Chandlers Ford
    Eastleigh
    Hants S05 2JA
    Phone: +44 1703 268 400
    The previous owner of my boat had the Sestrel compass serviced there about
    6 years ago.
    Hope this helps,
    Aubrey
