- I have two in used but good condition, My father had them from his service as a radio groundsman in the RAAF stationed in Darwin and then Pierce air base in Western Australia During WW2.
We used them to communicate from dads workshop to the house when I was school age about 35 years ago, they are complete and still work perfectly.

- I have one from Australia dated 1941 in an aluminium case. It is in excellent perhaps unissued condition,with correct strap but was missing the handset that I have since located one. I reproduced the "earth pin" based on a photo of an original one.

- I have a telephone that looks remarkably similar to this one. It is a Canadian issue phone with the date 1940 on it. the serial code is C-3289. All it is missing is the receiver, but the original wires are still in the box.
I hope someone can tell me more about it. I am curious as to it's history.
