Walkie Talkie. This was the first Man-pack radio.
It was made by Philco in 1944. We got it from Italy
where it had been left after the end of WWII. It
was well used.
BC-611. This was considered the first Walkie Talkie
but was actually a Handy Talkie. We have 2 of these.
One was used as a movie prop from Republic Films
then MGM. It was in many WWII movies made between
1941 and 1945.
