Huskyman: Thanks for that, I do have a friend of mine who is handy with a compass, just wanted to read a little more into it also.
Jake: Lol 'Cliff', he was born to write the book, just had a look on Amazon and the reviews look great, its just what I wanted really, especially being fairly small and thin as they say, I can take it with me. Think I will order this, thanks.
Peter Clinch: Ye I will look into that, seems like a good way to learn.
Sam09: Is it this one? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Navigation-Walkers-Julian-Tippett/dp/1871890543/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1336982557&sr=1-3 Seems to get good reviews too. Thanks.
Now, I know they pretty much do the same thing and probably any proper one will do, but can anyone recommend a good compass, which one do you guys use?
