Girl Scout Compasses


Learning the mysterious skills of the compass was often a highlight for a Girl Scout.  In the early years compasses were offered in the catalogs, but did not have the logo.  That didn't happen until 1931.  No compasses were sold during the height of World War II.  Compasses changed little over the years.

 

1931 was the first time a compass had the official logo
