There are three "typical" "volksemphanger" & whilst not combat fieldgear, a "peoples radio" somehow made it into my collection. Power supply capacitors have been changed & a cord added. Works perfectly!
This speaker "box" is about 8" (200mm) square and is constructed of "prestoff" type cardboard. Interestingly, the frame of the speaker visible in the 3rd pic from left is also made from this material. The only metal parts are the magnet & coil.
Combo mic & earphone handpiece shaped to use while wearing a helmet.
