    Latest acquisition,  pair of field telephones.  I am not entitrely sure whether they are Built in Belgium, or whetherthey are US supplied.
    The phones are a Signal Corps design, but my gut feeling is the Bg code might mean it was actually lineced produced in Belgium,
    Either way they clearly are ABL.  I guess late 40's throughto mid late 80's even though a pre war design, the US was still using this type in Viet-Nam

    I don't know where they were manufactured - are there no trademarks anywhere?

    It shouldn't take much to get these working. If you have some long lengths of wire, you can install your own private telephone system at home!
