Your comments:

  • I can't see the details of the picture, but I assume this is a "Detector Mine No. 4C", the same I have. Unfortunately, a post-war item.

  • I have one of these mine detectors, as issued to the NZ army in WW2, complete with backpack and wooden transit case, but unfortunately no headset...I've been looking years for one!
