  1. Good afternoon, This is my first posting on this forum, so hopefully it comes out right! I’m in the process of putting together a (working and authentic) complete Abbot and command post (FV432) radio and line communications system, to complement my other Larkspur radio communication projects and equipment (see my radio amateur call sign G3YVW on QRZ.com). I have the command post equipment, repaired and tested, but need to complete the Abbot equipment. I was able to visit the Muckleburgh Military collection a few weeks ago in Norfolk, very kindly being given permission by the owner, to have unrestricted access to one of their Abbots. This has helped me greatly see how the system is put together in practice and to see the items I am still in need of. I am putting together the Larkspur version of the comms system, rather than the later updated Clansman version, although I understand that it was only the radio (Larkspur) that was replaced with the Clansman (352?), all of the wiring and harness items from the original Larkspur fit remaining the same. So the items I am on the lookout for, maybe from someone who is breaking an Abbot, or from an Abbot no longer required, etc are:- Larkspur B48 VHF radio Radio-line Box - see photo Intercommunication junction box - see photo Intercommunication junction box (FV562042) - see photo Emergency crew junction box - see photo Receiver Induction unit as used by the crew (with the induction loop) - see photo Many thanks for reading this, and hopefully someone out there can help! Brian
