He served on the staff in the Egyptian campaign of 1884-85 and during the Boer War. He died in 1922. During his career Verner patented several marching Compass designs. Whilst the basic prismatic compass design has its origins in Schmalcalder's patent of 1812 (Patent No 3545), Verner's Pattern is a significant development. Verner's Patents were all pocket compasses. Model numbers were issued to his compasses starting with a Verner's Pattern V with developments through to the VII, VIII and the IX of WW2. Verner's Pattern compasses are both incredibly popular with collectors as well being a compass that can still be practically and easily used today. The most common models are the Verner's Pattern VII and Verner's Pattern VIII which were mainly used during WW1. Their basic construction is a prismatic dry card compass with a both a momentary bearing lock and transit lock. This is an excellent original example of the MK VIII. It is fully functioning.
