Add a memory or information about this object
- Back in the 1980's I was given three of these telephones by my Great Uncle. Two were dated 1938 and one from 1937. It was unknown where they had originally came from but as my uncle lived in Norfolk literally next door to Feltwell airfield I suspect the armed forces recovered them somehow. Myself and my sister used to play with them having laid bell wire throughout our home to varoius rooms. Two of them are in excellent condition but the other no longer turns to make a call. Inside the condition is very good which indicates that they were well protected from water damage. The quality of the components is amazing and certainly a legacy of German engineering that they would be proud of still today.
