Marine Craft Installation
These pics were kindly sent in by Bob Symons from Cape Town, who was a radio op on RAF marine craft. It shows the 1154/55 installation in an RAF marine craft, with an ARC52 alongside and the TR1998 VHF transceiver below - still in use in 1972... Thanks Bob !
Peter Elias, MW3AQV, sent this pic of himself at the wireless ops' position in what is thought to be a Shackleton. The pic was taken in 1952 at RAF Boscombe Down.
Another picture sent in by Bob Symons from South Africa. Originally featured in the book 'Flying Boat Queen', it shows a Master Signaller operating his 1154/55 in a Sunderland flying boat. With thanks to Bill Whiter who supplied the excellent original photo.
A superbly atmospheric drawing of a Sunderland 'on the step' can be seen (and purchased) here.....
Lynn is a good friend and produces some fine artwork. See what you think ! And an order would really make her day...!!
I would like to add many more pictures of 1154/55 users and installations here - if you have anything suitable please email it to me, or I can scan and return your photographs. Thanks.
