    Default US Army Wire Reels and Pouch?

    Hi all. I am looking for an ID on these items. All came together in the pouch. I have no idea what they are but they sort of look like wire for signalling with a three- way connector in the middle. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great. The pouch it marked but is smudged. Only marking I can see on a reel is something like 10B/1645. Cheers.

    Regarding the prefix you give, according to the RAF V4 parts manual:

    10B = Radio (Wireless and Radar) Aerial and Mast Equipment and Insulators

    I was wondering if it might be something to do with the emergency wireless/signalling kit from say, a liferaft or the Uffa Fox airborne lifeboat, just thinking aloud really....

    Hmmm, interesting idea. Such a shame the writing on the bag is so obscured (although I think I can make out Type 50). When I first saw it I thought something to do with portable communications. Thanks for the input Ned.

    Just to add to that theory. This is a pic of part of an RAF T1333 Transmitter from a dinghy:
