Headset No10 for the Wireless Set No19 in original packing, this item literally fell of the back of a lorry in 1952, and is dated April 52. At first they were used to produce passports, ration books, and other forged documents for use in occupied Europe. Since the war the FANY has been known mainly for it's work in the field of military and civil communications. Attached to the pigeons leg and containing a small rolled paper message, sometimes as thin as a human hair. Carrier pigeon message tubes were used during WW1 and WW11, during WW1 wireless communication was still in its infancy, and telephones in the theatre of war could only be used over limited distances. The history of the use of carrier pigeons in warfare is indeed a varied and interesting one, with a long and illustrious history. Pigeons played a vital part in World War One as they proved to be an extremely reliable way of sending messages.
In October 1918, as the war neared its end, 194 American soldiers found themselves trapped by German soldiers. Supplied with one spare set of vacuum tubes inside unit, some units in 1942 were supplied with two spare sets. The Receiver Type R1475 consists of the Receiver Type 88 and the Power Unit Type 360 ( Not in the Museum ).
This is the transceiver only, without the 'B' portion.Each WS19 radio unit contains three separate systems. The ‘B set’ was Very High Frequency (VHF) transmitter-receiver for short-range line-of-sight communications up to 1 mile. A separate audio amplifier was provided for intercommunications between members of the crew. A general purpose communications receiver during World War 2 The Marconi CR100 B28 is a self contained Communications Receiver of super heterodyne type with AVC for use on CW or Phone reception. As with other versatile equipment of the Forties, the CR100 was subject to a number of variations, most of them minor in specification, to suit particular Service needs. Throat microphones are usually worn in noisy environments such as aircraft, and although slightly distorted, can still be intelligible. Transmitter used by aircraft for 'spotting' the fall of artillery shells, the operator could tell the gunners if they were on target.
The transmitter and Morse key were totally enclosed lest a spark ignite petrol vapour in the cockpit.
The transmitters were developed by the Royal Naval Air Service and the makers were The Sterling Telephone Company. Although the radio operator and pilot could use the communication equipment on board, the general crew could not, but they were allowed to to use 'Command' Equipment.
This particular portion of the system ( SCR1305A ) , was a beacon receiver for tracking a fixed course by following a beam from a distant transmitter, (similar to 'get you home' beams). The ROC from 1925 were organised by the RAF with trained professional officers and civilian volunteers for the purpose of observing incoming enemy aircraft.
The HRO receiver was first announced in QST magazine in October 1934 and shipped in March 1935, incorporating many design features requested by the fledgling airline industry that were also attractive to the amateur radio community. The HRO found widespread use during World War II as the preferred receiver of various Allied monitoring services, including Y-Service stations associated with the code-breaking group at Bletchley Park (Station X) in England. The title HRO is said to have originated as a result of the initial title HOR standing for 'Ham Operators Radio' this was said to be not acceptable due to it's other interpretations, so the letters were changed to HRO.
Another story relates to the fact that it was required to be designed and developed in a very short time, and was given the nickname 'Hell of a rush' again HOR presented the same problem.
The B2 or Type 3 Mk2 spy set was developed by Major John Brown (then Captain) in 1942 and replaced an earlier version, the A Mk 3. The sets were dropped from aircraft in these boxes, they are completely waterproof and could be sunk in rivers for retrieval later. Two versions were made of this set: Type A for infantry Company-Platoon use and Type B for infantry Mortar-Platoon use. This product has not been made since just after WW2 and was used in Public Address systems as well as military communications. Being extremely robust it will continue to work after much abuse, making it ideal for the Army or Navy in rough conditions. Sir Henry Christopher Mance (1840–1926), of British Army Signal Corps, developed the first apparatus while stationed at Karachi, Bombay. Used for signalling by reflecting the suns ray's, a second mirror is supplied for when the sun is behind the sender. The flashes are produced by momentarily pivoting the mirror, or by interrupting the beam with a shutter. Morse signalling lamp with a very narrow beam and a Morse key unit which can be mounted on a Helios tripod, like Item A1450, or staked in the ground.
For night time use filters are provided, also an aperture plate to reduce the light output. The first time this model was produced was during the fist World War designed by George Lucas.
Amplified version of Field Telephone Type 'F' using a valve stage to amplify the strength of the signal. The improved version of the Mk3 although no speech was possible, Morse was heard only via the headset. The Mk 1 Star, replaced the earlier Mk1 with minor differences, the main one, being it had round corners instead of square. A small portable ground station for communication between searchlight section headquarters and anti-aircraft batteries.
This unit is original apart from the repainted front panel which was badly corroded, but the colour is the same. A small portable ground station for communication between searchlight section headquarters and 'AA' batteries.
A man pack portable set for short range communications, carried by one man and operated by a second. Hydrometers are used for the measurement of specific gravity.The unit can also approximate the charge of a secondary cell (chargeable type) that has a liquid electrolyte by, in this case, the floating or sinking of the plastic balls in the barrel of the tube, (the liquid is sucked up from the battery by depressing the bulb and releasing).

This wireless set was developed for Combined Operation Command to provide radio communication under difficult conditions, such as sea landing operations. Used in the Fairy Swordfish Aircraft, they were also fitted in the Sunderland Flying Boat and other aircraft between the two world wars. The variant 'N' was originally designed for RAF Coastal Command) for general-purpose airborne use, and the R1154N (steel) for all other general use, except in bomber aircraft. By WW2 the old Candlestick (Pillar Phone) was becoming obsolete being replaced by the 200 series Pyramid type, to help the War effort the British Post Office were able to find many of the old phones for conversion. The Desk microphone No3 was used with the 1154 Transmitter when operating as a ground station Item A0164.
In service mainly in Northern Ireland during the 1980's, fitted with a Clansman 353, 320 and 351 Manpack VHF Radios also Larkspur C12 and C45 Transceivers. C45 - (middle right on table) Developed around 1955 working VHF Frequencies, FM from 23 Mhz to 38 Mhz, identical to the C42 which worked 60 Mhz to 36 Mhz also FM, only 15 Watts.
R353 - (far left) Made by Marconi or Racal, Vehicle unit same frequencies and modes of operation as the R351 but power up to 50 watts from the vehicle antennae, the large boxes on the wings are aerial tuning units for Racal FM sets. The Brown Bess Flint Lock Musket was in use by the British Army from 1730 to 1835 when it was replaced for percussion models, starting with the Enfield 3 band pattern.
In February 1800 the Baker Rifle won a competition organised by the army's board of ordnance and became the first rifle officially adopted by the British army. Previously, rifles had been issued on a limited basis and consisted of parts made to no precise pattern, often brought in from Germany. The rifle is referred to almost exclusively as the "Baker Rifle", but it was produced by a variety of manufacturers and sub-contractors from 1800 to 1837. Our example is a replica made for the TV series Sharp and is a good example of one of the many variants that were made. 1848, the first models of Sharps Sporting Rifles were being made in Mill Creek, Pennsylvania by the firm of A. The Model 1851 was replaced in production by the Model 1853 which was surpassed by the Model 1859. Pill Lock muskets used a tube placed under the hammer and held by a cover, when the hammer came down the tube fractured and two components mixed causing a spark, thus firing the weapon. This is a Musket type rifle, made in 1858, 2nd Pattern,Tower marked (made by contractors) with a P53 bayonet, made in time for the American Civil War. The British Army was in the midst of a significant weapons transformation from smooth bore muskets to rifled muskets.
By the end of 1853, the Enfield Rifled musket, as approved by the War Department for the army and was put into production.
This rifle replaced the Brunswick A1035 and Baker A1104 also the Victorian 'Minie' of 1851. It was adopted by Britain as a conversion system for its ubiquitous Enfield 1853 rifled musket muzzle loading arms. From 1866 on the rifles were converted in large numbers at the Royal Small Arms Factory (RSAF) Enfield beginning with the initial pattern, the Mark I. It’s not always easy, given the ever-changing regulatory requirements imposed on antique weapons. Zelfs de metalen pin voor de aarde is aanwezig, plus enkele reserve-onderdelen zoals lampjes en oordopjes.

During WW1 the FANY ran field hospitals, drove ambulances and set up soup kitchens and troop canteens. In 1940 Hugh Dalton, Minister of Economic Warfare, established the Special Operations Executive (SOE). The unit can be pedal or hand operated, and is supplied with all the suitable accessories, on the top of the main unit is a meter indicating up to 150V with two red marks between which the needle should be held whilst turning the pedals.
Such was the importance of pigeons that over 100,000 were used in the war with an astonishing success rate of 95% getting through to their destination with their message. 62 (WS62) was a general purpose, low-power, semitropical, vehicle station transmitter & receiver designed for short-range use in the high-frequency (HF) radio bands by the British Army during the Second World War. On the top of the unit should be an ammeter, unfortunately this item is missing, the museum is currently searching for this item. Once opened by a Sardine key, the balloon was filled with Hydrogen and the aerial wire attached. An estimated 1,000 standard HROs were initially purchased by Great Britain, and approximately 10,000 total saw use by the British in intercept operation, diplomatic communications, aboard ships and at shore stations as well as for clandestine use. However the set itself with its interchangeable tuning coil sets and its superb tuning mechanism made it one of the most sort after sets by radio amateurs after the war.
Calling is by Magneto hand cranked Generator and the unit can be used with switchboard BD72 Item A0057. 88 set was carried in a pouch similar to a Bren gun ammunition pouch, which made carrying and operation inconspicuous.
Apart from the difference in frequencies and indication plate, they are distinguishable by their colours.
The Heliograph was a simple but highly effective instrument for instantaneous optical communication over 50 km or more in the late 19th and early 20th century. Heliograph's were standard issue in the British and Australian armies until the 1960s, and were used by the Pakistani army as late as 1975. It is supplied complete with Tripod (Normally used with Heliograph Item A0195) Single spike if not used with tripod Night Variable aperture disc and colour filters.
Because of the internal buzzer unit (chopper) it could transmit Morse via only one wire, using the ground as the other connection. In the second picture can be seen the amplifier at the rear, with one part missing, suspected to be the relay. Not the first true man pack; the WS No13 man pack in 1937 pre-dated it but was not so successful.
The combination is to show a variety of systems that could have been used in the Land Rover range of vehicles, not all at the same time of course.
Basically similar to the WS19 but does not include the B set, it has the same case, weight and dimensions but a wider frequency range, covering 1.6 Mhz to 10 Mhz AM, voice or CW (Morse). A manpack unit mounted in a vehicle frame this set was designed to communicate with base stations or each other using AM, CW or upper sideband modes rather than FM. The war against Revolutionary France had resulted in the employment of new tactics, and the British Army responded, albeit with some delay.

Most of the rifles produced between 1800 and 1815 were not made by Ezekiel Baker, but under the Tower of London system, and he sub-contracted the manufacture of parts of the rifle to over twenty British gunsmiths. Whilst still only a flintlock Musket, it was used by Rifle brigades while the bulk of the army used the Brown Bess (item A0539).
All civil war Sharps arms were percussion cap arms, using a combustible cartridge of paper or glazed linen.
While a number of regiments had been supplied with the pattern 1851, the majority of the army still carried the 1842 pattern smooth bore musket. It was one of the most widely used of the Snider varieties, (the action invented by the American Jacob Snider). In trials, the Snider Pattern 1853 conversions proved both more accurate than original Pattern 1853s and much faster firing as well. He read a lot about it, and Alain knew very early on that there was a trade in antique weapons.
If all the paperwork is in order, Alain knows precisely what to look at to determine the value. We therefore recommend using one of the direct payment methods available from our payment screen.
Contact was made with the Commandant of FANY and arranged for her to provide personnel for the SOE.
The base plate comes with a chain so it can be attached to a tree trunk or other similar object, also supplied are two clamps for table mounting. The only chance they had of alerting anybody about their desperate situation was to send a pigeon with their co-ordinates attacked to its leg.
Known as the 'Handy Talkie' This small hand held radio was used for communications at very close range, with a max range of about one mile in ideal conditions. One of the features was the power supply, which could operate from 120 or 240 volt mains or a 6 volt car battery. 31 and four channels marked A to D on its tuning dial correspond with those on Wireless Set No. 19 for the purpose of communicating with infantry personnel equipped with Wireless Sets No.
The Morse key is stowed inside the lid and has two settings, one via a resistance for new batteries to preserve the bulb, a box of spare bulbs and accessories is also provided.
Although they were used mainly in aircraft, later in the war they were fitted to small boats (N suffix), and also to vehicles (115, 115B, 130, 131). Most Brown Bess's were made in various workshops and Proofed by the Tower of London, this model made by William Ketland who also made high quality guns for George 111.
Prior to the formation of an Experimental Rifle Corps in 1800, a trial was held at Woolwich by the British Board of Ordnance on 22 February 1800 in order to select a standard rifle pattern; the rifle designed by Ezekiel Baker was chosen. It was reported that many rifles that sent to the British Army inspectors were not complete, to the extent of even having no barrel, since the rifle was sent on to another contractor for finishing. Having only two grooves in the barrel and using a percussion cap type lock, it remained in service for nearly half a century. The basic principle of toggle-linking guard lever and vertical sliding breech block all date from the 1848 patent.
The Mark III rifles were newly made, with steel barrels which were so marked, flat nosed hammers, feature a latch-locking breech block. In fact he set up his own flourishing trade in antique weapons and militaria before the age of 20. The Counter-Poise has four wire segments which are laid like a cross underneath the radiating antenna.
The First Aid Nursing Yeomanry was created in 1907 by Lord Kitchener, as a link organisation between front line fighting units and field hospitals. It remained in service until the late 1960;s It was used in the Second World War by British Army infantry, the Parachute Regiment and the Special Air Service (SAS) The equipment was also used in Auster and Beaver aeroplanes and the Skeeter helicopter. It could be dropped by air in watertight cases (often concealed in rivers or lakes) or worn as a backpack. Several companies manufactured them, including Marconi, Ekco, Plessy, Philips, and the Gramophone Co. This is remarkable because he is not known to have produced military rifles before, being involved only in the repair and production of muskets. Baker's production during the period 1805-1815 was a mere 712 rifles, not even enough to be in the "top ten". By releasing a catch a soldier could pull down the trigger guard, which dropped the breech and allowed him to insert a cartridge. He would personally like to come across a well-maintained 19th-century Colt revolver, which we all recognise from the old spaghetti westerns. The four wires terminate to a central location at the radios earth terminal to provide an artificial ground plane. It was first trialled early in 1944, postwar military production resuming in the early 1950s, and production for commercial applications continuing until 1966.
Indeed, it is not known how much of the rifle now commonly named after him was actually the result of his own work.
He also thinks that a beautiful blunderbuss would be of interest to many collectors at the auction. See pyetelecomhistory.org The Wireless set No 62 incorporated its own Power unit and Variometer, unlike its predecessor the WS 22 which incorporated its own Variometer only, the WS 19 incorporated neither, both were additional units. It served throughout the British Empire, including the Cape Colony, India, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, until its gradual phase out by the Martini-Henry, beginning in 1874 but still being used by volunteer and militia forces until the late 1880s. The Carrier Pigeon Service was only used when telegraph and telephone communications failed and was soon overtaken by the development of Wireless Telegraphy (i.e. With the "Lost Battalion's" co-ordinates, the Americans launched a rescue and the 194 men were saved.
The top edge, on closing the breech, sheared off the end of the cartridge to expose the powder.
Radio), further limiting their usage; hence, they were only used for emergency or espionage purposes. The avian unit saw further success at the Battle of the Somme and at Verdun, often against screens of poisonous gas and heavy shelling from the opposition. As with other pigeons, it would not have known where the American's nearest headquarters was - its natural homing instincts took over. This set is a complex set that is not to the novice modeller, however will be perfectly accessible to the average modeler with a very satisfactory result.
