Can anyone tell me about a radiation counter that I've been shown. It was purchased at a garage sale some time ago by a woman at work and I told her I'd try to get it appraised for her. The pouch is clearly stamped and dated 1942 with the broad arrow in a C and seems to have been made for the device. The wand is brass and stamped 'Eveready'. There are four spare tubes and a plastic 'Radiac Calculator No1' wheel. It uses the phrase 'atomic explosion'.
Either the Canadian military was prepared to deal with atomic warfare in 1942 or the counter was made to fit an existing bag.
