Belgian Army radio?

Recommended Posts

Did find this strange radio. Apart from the dutch and french markings on the front there is not any marking on the set. The dial even doesn't have frequency markings on it but numbers. The hands function like those of a clock. The valves seem to be from the 40s. Could also be Civil Defense. Did anoyone see one of those yet.

I did have a quick check of the thing it seems that they build a 220volt power supply chassis on the left next to the original green chassis. Maybe it was an battery operated unit?

I cleaned the interior from a lot of dust and it turns out most valves are prewar and 1 is german Reichsluftfahrtministerium and one is british WD issue... So the thing is older than i thought. I think the wooden frame is build later.

The markings in both Dutch and French would indeed indicate Belgian use. This pale grey-green is more associated with CD than military use I think?
