    Looks like a bodge to me!

    The headphones are similar to the ones used on mine detectors, and the microphone is the late WW2 No.13 from the WS19/22/62 "Mic & Headgear No.10" by the look of things.

    Definitely not enough contacts on the jack plug to make it usable!

    Well... none of the bits match up.

    The headphones are from an early mine detector, the microphone (and cabling) is from Microphone & Headgear Assembly No.10, and the jack plug is post 1960s civilian.

    My guess is that (in no particular order) the original 5-way "snatch plug" was replaced by a 1/4" stereo jack plug, possibly with the microphone switched (there aren't enough contacts on the plug for headphones, microphones and transmit/receive switching) for amateur radio use, then at some point one of the headphone inserts failed, so the headset was replaced with the "mine detector" version it now has.

    Definitely a bit of a 'bitzer'.

    Chris.
