  1. a41 almost to ces apart from i think the remote unit, Comes with commanders handset operators headset, remote and battle whips and feeder spike etc, I have fitted a french psu from the prc9 into the old battery case and the set was working when last used and was powered by a pair of 12v sla batteries that also fit into the battery case. Case and set are not modified and is a good clean example, It comes with the ft2 test set that can be used with the a40, cprc26, a41 marks 1 and 2 and this has all leads with it, This is UK sales only as hassle shipping overseas and although i would prefer collection from Essex cm20 it could go via a carrier but will not be cheap due to weight and size and i could not be held for damage in transit. £350 ono 07760 245593

  6. No it's not a campaign for wrongful conviction but having a clearout and have the following, 2x 1966, 1x 1953, 1 x 1969 i think , 1 modern German marked Treibstoff, these are free to collect from cm18 Harlow.
  7. Thats for a dismounted atu and rod aerial for a c11/r210,the spike for going in the ground would attach through the lug on the side and the atu fits underneath,pic 1 is a view from the bottom.
  8. On this day In 1944 a flight of Mosquitoes took off from Hunsdon airfield in Herfordshire for a raid on Amiens prison in France where French resistance and political prisoners were being held,some awaiting execution,it was a precision attack with the walls being breached and a number of captives escaping although many were later caught but the raid did destroy a lot of German documentaion on resistants and other prisoners. There is some British Pathe film of the raid on youtube and a lot has been written about the raid if you care to search,i will raise a glass tommorow night to you gentlemen.
  9. A chap in vmars has a vehicle mounting kit and i may have the paperwork for that on a HD somewhere,did BCC get swallowed up by Racal?

  14. Solved, Thanks to Andy g8jac for solving this question,it's the mounting tray for a bid150 crypto unit of all things.
  15. Chris, It crossed my mind that it may be for the a14 vehicle mounting gubbins which is quite a slim affair but only having seen one once i seem to recall it was something like the a13 vehicle mount but without the legs although i could be going off track,although it is the two holes in the clamp that are odd,are they for a strap to go across or for bolts to go through to attach whatever they hold.
  16. Richard, It's 54.5cm wide and 32.5cm deep that is the inside measurement where the eqpt would sit,nobody knows on the clansman larkspur group either,it's not for a teleprinter at least not a Siemens t100/c11/r210 as i have just sold a vehicle with that setup installed and it's not for a c12 as that used the 19set carrier.
  17. Bilbo I see you say our prc10 so guess you are in the USA,i have a British a41 which is almost identical and have used a French psu for a prc19 to power it although it was removed from the case with the protruding pins and runs nicely from 2 1.2Ah sla batteries all fitted into the old battery case(the waxy one)which then slots into the metal case,i did not change any wiring and the plug fitted so maybe i was lucky and did not have a smoke leak but check with somebody knowledgeable than myself and if you can avoid it do not butcher the case!
  18. Hi Jarrett, Could well be ,radio gear is not my strong point ! Rob Should have a great big insulator to go at the base for when it is used as a vertical radiator,but yes Larkspur from looking at rhe pigtails on the guy ropes and the big stakes for them,lucky you have the c spanner for locking it off as these often get mislaid,if you put it up just watch it does not slide down a section as it will make a mess of the flap of skin between thumb and forefinger(no i haven't done it)
  19. Having a sort out and came across this one,it has been overpainted so no nsn visible and is the same size as Larkspur trays(one of the reasons i have it)it has four Barry mounts on the underside and looks as though the arms on the swing out clamps are for tightening in the absence of a spanner?and why the pin on the clamp plate facing outwards or am i barking up the wrong tree.
  20. Australian made slr,fully cocking and strips and dry fires,this comes with wood and abs furniture,sling,bayonet,blank fire adapter,20rnd and 30 rnd mags(not sure if the 30 is for a late bren but it fits)couple of clips of dummy rounds,cleaning kit and deac certificate dated 14.09.95 by Charnwood, located in Essex CM18, £1375 NOW SOLD

  22. For Sale is my unique 1967 ex-military Series IIa FFR 109 Land Rover. It was used as a development vehicle for the Rapier missile system and carried the ‘Special Project’ military registration mark of 00 SP 53. Because of this, it does not have the usual wear and tear you would expect on a service vehicle of this age and I suspect it spent most of its time at the BAE factory during the trials. It originally had some bracketry fitted to the rear seat-bases (all retained and included in the sale) which were designed to carry missiles even though its data plate states Fire Unit Rover Project Vehicle. It has a current MOT certificate that is valid until June and from memory it has around 46,000 miles on the clock (which was rebuilt by speedy cables). It is tax exempt due to its age and retains all of its original military fittings which include: radio table, battery box, ops seats, standard wiring, side arms for the aerials, Nato (which is wired and working) and Warner plug sockets for a trailer (which was common during this transition period), shovel and pickaxe to the rear tailgate, original mirrors, indicator stalk and SLR rifle clips. The only things that have been changed are: the door tops, windscreen frame and glass (the original is included in the sale), a civilian distributor and plugs (again, the originals are included in the sale) and for safety, the headlights have been changed to halogen but the original bowls and bezels have been retained. The sale will also include the radios, tele-printer (all in working order and will be checked again before you collect), cables, trays, atu's, spare paper and tape for the printer together with my stock of vehicle spares which include light lenses, charge panel, indicator stalks, centre exhaust section, road spring (new) two brand new genuine LR fuel tanks along with many other useful odds and ends. I would also include all the documents and photograph relating to this vehicle ie. Tax discs, MOT’s, re-build photographs etc. Known minor problems, which I am unable to deal with due to poor health: a slight blow from the joint between the exhaust downpipe / exhaust manifold and the transfer box has an oil leak, but I will include the oil seal to rectify this. £10,000 Email: mickb52@aol.com or Mobile tel: 07760 245593 Also available by separate negotiation. An Australian SLR with early spec deactivation C. 14/09/95 so cocks, dry fires and can be field stripped. It comes with both wood and ABS furniture, inert ammunition, two magazines (one 20 round and one 30 round), a sling and bayonet,bfa,cleaning kit.
