Re: Robin Knox Johnston’s stolen compass returned after 50 years

I found this passage very interesting:

“Sir Robin said he won’t be reinstalling the compass on Suhaili as after ‘this publicity there is bound to be someone who would steal it again, but it’s lovely that it has been found.’”

He seems to know humans well!

Fair winds.
