when we intended target turning the big tick mark on the current position of the compass needle with the north.


run to march number: 

To us now later on this march number to Orient, we turn with the compass (not the compass itself) until such time as the larger line marking and the north pointer match again, the bearing line should now to the first, read grade numbers show and we can until we reach the goal towards the Peilstriches orientation.
