Actual item pictured. This unique Dutch military radio component set (model WS 88 A) includes the following Four (4) items: One (1) Headgear assembly No. 15 (Microphone and earphones, cord/plug, adjustable cotton web strap) (foam display head NOT included) , Two (2) foldable antennae sections (1960s dates) and One (1) metal two-sided instruction plate in Dutch language. The model WS 88 radio set was developed post-World War II by the British military in 1947 as a portable, wireless field radio. The small radio unit was carried in a special web field/ammunition-style pouch on the equipment belt. The folding antennae was deployed from the top of the pouch and the headgear assembly plugged into the radio to make and receive transmissions. This variant pictured was made for Dutch troops and carried the nomenclature, R.C. 1 (WS 88 A). Please note-- this accessory set does NOT include the radio! Surplus radio equipment is in condition pictured, no guarantees of function, but all components appear completely intact. Antennae sections are unissued-- one package was opened to inspect/show contents only (original packaging is included). One section is dated January 1961, one is dated 11/1965. Serial numbers on both antennae sections are 524 VBDD DEP CIE, 5985 17 610 0261. Only one of antennae sections are needed in the original radio configuration, so the second section was intended as a spare. All 4 components of this set were packaged together when received and have been stored in a dry, cool environment. Overall condition is good to very good, but with minor scuffs, dents and scratches from long-term storage. Rubber three prong cord on headset is still very flexible and supple and web strap is fully functional. Shipping weight 3 lbs. Please take a good look at our photos of this unique offering and let us know if you have any questions.
