Submit YOUR photos! Please include a short narrative and remember, pictures are MUCH more attractive if they have a PERSON in them. So, put yourself in FRONT of the camera, please. If you don't have access to a scanner, you can mail me the picture, which I will scan and return to you. (Email me for the mailing address.) However, if you do your own scanning, please keep the finished product under 20K in size. Thanks much! -Bob.

Below it is the British WS#62 Mk3, a transceiver made some years after the war but developed in 1944/45. Beneath the WS#62 the British receiver type R107, which is a part of the WS#12 radio set. In the right mid section the receiver type R109 (British), which was used in the battle of Arnhem in 1944. Beneath that is the British Wavemeter Class D in its wooden case.

The lower photgraph is the British WS#19 Mk 3 made by PYE company. On top is the highpower amplifier type RF2. The tubes are 4 ATS 25 (807 but ceramic). All the equipment in good original working conditions. I also have a lot of German radio equipment used by the 'Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe', most of them original and in working condition, as well as a lot of British aircraft radios used by the RAF in Lancasters and Wellingtons (Marconi T1154, R1155, GE).

My interest goes a long way to the Canadian version of the WS#19, because in the past Meppel, Netherlands (where I live) was also liberated by the Canadian second army, the Manitoba-Dragoons.'
