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?

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

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 :)

 

No nothing lurking in the woods Lauren

I now want a vehicle mounted detector

 

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 :-(

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

 

Ah well, probably my mispent youth watching the goggle box. The Enemy THRUSH had a Vampir sight mounted on there rifles.
