Hmmm, possibly handles on the side. Is there a coil or sensor under the cover? Not very large, only a few inches across.

Nope - no idea at all.

Is it a cable reel of some sort

 

There are some wires as it happens but not the reel of cable that it looks as if it might resemble.

if it's not a mic is it a ear piece of sort's

 

Wally yes well followed up, there is an earpiece on a short cable out of sight but underneath this device.

Some sort of audible compass or direction indicator? It looks as though it straps onto a helmet (otherwise the earpiece cable is too short), the spiky knob is a battery compartment cover, but I can't fathom the switch marked 3 and F.

Homing device to help you find a portapotty in the blackout.<br>

"F" being the German word "Fartzimmer".<br>

The only reason I can think of for the F position is in a directional device. A ground based based verson of VOR?

It looks like something fits onto the the three protrusions with holes in.

 

At the moment I'm thinking it's something like an aquaphone. I don't suppose it's for a midget submarine is it?
