    Photo of a Wireless A Mk3 in my collection.


    This has been professionally modified - all "new" components are Australian.

    One key difference is the pull/push switch:

    Original Set powered - "Mains" or "Battery"

    This set powered - "Generator" or "Battery"

    Added to this the mains power selection board has been removed.

    I know the Australians parachuted the WS A Mk3 with the Alco Sirius Steam generator for SOE (SOA?) operations, so is it likely that this modified set was modified for such a purpose working on the assumption that Mains Electric wasnt very likely in the middle of the jungle.

    Anyone know?
