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!

Chris, I must defer to your greater knowledge, as I stated I am no expert, but why a bodge up ........

Well... none of the bits match up. :-D

 

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'. :-D

 

Chris.
