Instructions on how to use a Silva Compass:
SILVA 1 - 2 - 3 SYSTEM 1 2 3 4 1. Place compass on map with edge along desired line of travel. Make sure the Direction of Travel arrow points toward your destination. 2. Rotate capsule until the N on the graduation ring points towards North on the map. Check that compass housing North/South lines are parallel to map meridians. 3. Hold compass horizontally in front of you. Turn yourself until red end of the needle points towards N on the compass graduation ring. (Red end of needle will now be aligned to red North arrow in the bottom of the compass capsule). Direction of Travel arrow now points precisely to your destination. Look up, sight on a land-mark and walk to it. Repeat this procedure until you reach your destination. 4. When using a sighting compass with a mirror, hold compass as per picture so that you can check the direction by looking at compass housing in the mirror while sighting in the correct direction of travel. Magnetic declination and how to compensate for it: The difference, between Geographic North (North/South map meridians) and Magnetic North (towards which red end of the compass needle points), is called declination. The amount and direction of declination is shown on the map. For ex. 20 degrees. For Easterly declination, adjust as follows: With the declination scale inside the capsule (Field 7, Ranger 3 etc.), turn yourself until red end of the compass needle points to 20 degrees. On the E. decl. scale now the direction of travel arrow points in the correct direction. NB! Always check the functionality of the compass before using it in the field. Never expose compasses to extreme temperatures (above + 60C or below -40C), or to magnetic fields, such as knives, radio speakers, magnets etc. Such exposure can cause permanent damage to them. With compasses that have a declination adjuster (Voyager 9020, 8010 and 8040 etc), you simply hold the graduation ring and turn the compass capsule until the red end of the North arrow points towards 20 degrees on the Eastern side of the declination scale. When this is done the compass will automatically adjust the bearing. Remember though, to use the North/South lines on the graduation ring as map north reference lines when taking the bearing on the map.
