Sunclock

Brass, 5.1cm diameter
Pictures Collection, H13278

Used in the relief expedition under John McKinlay.

The clock face 'floats' on a pivot, like a compass needle, so it can be easily aligned to magnetic north.  The table inside the lid indicates how to adjust the clock reading for different times of the year.
