Unlike in this position, There will be some degree of error. You need to hold your breath to stand still and get the right direction..

Analogical Tree - It is the analogical Matching on matters about similar in sounding, Algorithm and applications.

Therefore ETER is similar in sound with METER.

He-he, who got who? Your METER is a S.I. version (System Internationale) which was ONLY ADOPTED in 1977-1978. therefore what year was your COMPASS made? ;D ;D ;D :D :D :D

The "Metre" or "Meter".

#
# ^ The Metric Conversion Act of 1975 gives the Secretary of Commerce of the US the responsibility of interpreting or modifying the SI for use in the US. The Secretary of Commerce delegated this authority to the Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) (Turner). In 2008, NIST published the US version (Taylor and Thompson, 2008a) of the English text of the eighth edition of the BIPM publication Le Système international d'unités (SI) (BIPM, 2006). In the NIST publication, the spellings "meter", "liter" and "deka" are used rather than "metre", "litre" and "deca" as in the original BIPM English text (Taylor and Thompson, 2008a, p. iii). The Director of the NIST officially recognised this publication, together with Taylor and Thompson (2008b), as the "legal interpretation" of the SI for the United States (Turner).

so you can see, the word "Meter" was "Never" used during WWII by anyone!

What was seen on one gadget with "METER" part was in "S.I. (Sytem Internationale)" and the first country who adopted the S.I. was in 1977-1978 and therefore it was definitely made after the war.  :D :D :D ;D ;D ;D

     Hold your breath, what, to read the Compass,  ::), so, what you are saying is there will be no movement at all to be able to read the compass for it to read properly, then you cannot read the compass when you are at sea or you have so much jitter that you cannot hold the compass steady as you run out of alcohol or drugs. Some more of your crap NS. You should have been a politician,you will make a good one, WHY, you keep talking even when your brain had STOPPED. >:(

Dindo

You get a good point in your above statement that Japanese adopted metric system as their standard of measurement before the war.. Take a look at the scale of the compass used by Japanese.. 1: 25,000     Meter. But the readable word is ETER

       REply #16. Enlarge the photo and one can read the word METER, get your eyes checked.
