A S.O.E/Royal Air Force Escape and Evasion Matchbox Concealed Compass.
A fascinating array of James Bond style concealed weapons which British spies had at their disposal in the Second World War have been unearthed and they include a pipe digger and a lethal pencil.
The chilling collection consists of seemingly everyday items which, on closer inspection, conceal a deadly tool Special Operations Executive agents could turn to in a do-or-die situation behind enemy lines.
The 'escape and evasion' items have been amassed by a collector of World War Two memorabilia over the years but have now emerged for auction.
