Set, Radio, Helmet, Mk 2, US Navy
Genuine post-WWII US radio set, intended for the US Navy Mk 2 helmet. This full radio set is made up of the headset featuring a pair of receivers, the microphone and its chest mount, as well as the complete wire and plug. Manufactured by United States Instrument Corporation, Charlottesville, Virginia.
Designed in 1942, the Mark 2 was a very large helmet to wear though it did serve its purpose very well. It was designed to accommodate headphones for radiomen or anyone using shipboard sound-powered phones.
The present set is complete and in excellent condition.
