    Love that field telephone

    I made the mistake of trying to crank the handle and holding it down with my hand over the battery terminals and ..WOW..electric shuddered straight up my arm.

    since then ..I asked others to crank the handle

    I then purchased another of the same type and connected it with 18 gauge wire and I made the bells rings and also the little light for silent contact flickered.

    Nice pair of bookends

    Was a good day and I picked up a few things I am missing and yes the desk will look good in a display. I will be getting a ww2 Chaplains helmet from my friend in January, can’t have to many helmets LOL

    Great haul, the desk would be hard to find item this side of the big pond.

    It is a varied but impressive set.
    I have always thought that military chaplains, regardless of their nationality, are truly brave men. imagine that in full line of fire they expose their life to save the soul of a comrade of arms that is dying, can not but deserve all my admiration.

    Thanks guys for the looking. It was a great day not just for the items but to see a Chaplain buddy who has served this great country since 1987 and still enjoys serving the young men and women in uniform.
    I’m getting off from a 33hr work shift and will try to get pictures of the other items. There’s not much, a few tent halves a drogue parachute and a few other odd and ends.
