[Accouterments] Compass

My father bought this compass home from World War II.

I think it is a pre-war issue of high quality. It was manufactured by Wittenauer.

Can anyone tell me what year it was issued and when it was replaced by plastic and aluminum issues? Also, who received issues of this compass?

Thank you,

James B. Ronan II
