In 1942, Charles Fraser Smith, who worked in MI9, arrived at The Cumberland Pencil Factory with a puzzle for the management to solve. He had an idea to create a secret map and compass pencil. These pencils were given to Lancaster Bomber airman in the Second World War, and were made secretly under the official secrets act, in Keswick between 1939 – 1945. This set comes in a wooden box and contains one complete pencil and copies of all the component parts; pencil barrel,compass, ferrule, eraser and OS map of Keswick showing the location of the Pencil Museum and the Graphite Mine in Borrowdale.
