Actually, if you attached antenna to the three attachment points you'd probably have a direction finding set. Could this be for hunting rogue transmitters in the woods?

 

Edit: ah Tony's already thought of that :)

It's some kind of sensor with an audio output for the user.

 

1) Possible (but unlikely) to be an induction loop receiver as used by the artillery because there's no ear protection.

 

2) I'm wondering about the wearer having a "cap comforter" instead of a helmet... if it's a beacon receiver it's a very small one but it could be a compass of some sort - set the heading you need (somehow - those bits underneath) and get different tones when you're left, right or on track?

 

3) Infrared/radar detector for raiding parties? Would fit with the cap comforter in the photograph. Something to detect a terrain observation system (infra-red floodlighting or radar scanning of an area you are moving into) before you trip an alarm?

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

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

 

Not tried it for that yet

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

 

Not a VOR Tony

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?

 

This is an above ground device Lauren

Has to be said, it could be an early satellite phone :)

 

Not sure if we had satellites then.

is this a early type of hit detector

 

It isn't Wally but a very plausible suggestion

Clive have you been watching the trailer for The Man Fron U.N.C.L.E. film then? :D Those of us of the age will know the T.H.U.R.S.H. gun.

No I'm not familiar with that form of warfare, but doesn't sound to be playing by the rules :undecided:

Very cool. I now want a vehicle mounted detector and a set of the infra red binoculars for the Saracen!

Earlier in the year I had some Chieftain ones, but nobody seemed to want them even for a few pounds so I think I had to throw them away in the end :-(

I was beaten to the correct answer!!! I found an EMER referring to this recently, but it was mounted on a steel helmet.
