    I recently acquired these headsets, and I've tried to find photographic evidence of ww2 use but I can't find it.
    Does anybody know if this type of equipment was used in Europe during ww2?

    Hi Lake Sup'

    It is a slow Forum, isn't it.

    I'm no radio guru but I looked at Library and Archives' "Faces of War" page, did a search for "Radio" and got back many images of 19 sets in use and personnel wearing various headsets.

    Also, I'd recommend that you join another Forum and drop your question at Maple Leaf Up Forum: http://www.mapleleafup.net/forums/

    Great radio section called "The Wireless Forum" full of informative & helpful members. Very Happy

    regards
