Your comments:

  • I well recall using this headset with both 19 and 62 radio sets, Jeep or Morris FFW mounted, whilst serving with 12 and 55 Sqns RE in Korea and 11 Ind in Malaya during 1954/6. During this period the phonetic alphabet was changed from the able/baker version to the alpha/bravo.

  • My mother-in-law has just told me that she worked for Brown's in Park Royal during ww2 making the coils which went in the headphones! She worked there 1944 for 18 months.
