Default Unknown B2 set part

Guys,

Need some help identifying this piece? It came with a B2 set and looks like it was used in lieu of the normal power supply?

Has anyone ever seen one of these before?

It is British, it looks like a supply for a small receiver (RX) and transmitter (TX), but that is how far my knowledge of British stuff goes....

The plug is completely different than those found with B2 etc. so can anyone please shed some light on the type of plug this is?

Is it a commercial or military type and what would it be plugged into?

The shoddy soldering work and re-use of old parts give this a typical home-brew character. This was probably done by a a radio amateur who did not have the original power supply and cooked something up so he could link the B2 set into whatever power supply he was using. Common practice in the radio amateur world.

I had seen many 3mkII , there is an other point , b2 mains transformer
seems to burn easy , guess isolation is’nt very good , many psu
are faultly , and a previous owner had probably finded this problem , with a burned
psu , of you search for rewinding the transformer , or you adapt yourself
i think he has cutted the burned psu and made this adaptor .
It was what i had wrotten in post 4 .

Thanks guys, very informative.

Vendor states his father was not an amateur radio ham and never had an interest in radios. He stated this was amongst his fathers military kit that he brought home after the war and it never came out of the loft.

His father was a RAF wireless operator during the war and worked out of Italy and Albania.

Hello
When the war was over , in 1946 soe was disabended, and all
the radios sets where given for a bargain price at RSGB
radio society of great britain , but only to licences radio ham
for some Ł, nearly all the remaining B2 are containers ones
all of them with 45 date right in measuring instrument ,
The serial numbers are high 89.000 to 90.000.
I had seen a film On the kon-tiki raft , a norvegian was using his
B2 set with the hand generator
Following was i describe here up , one of the previous owner must
had a ham licence to be allow to buy the set, then may be later resold
to somebody else .
Normaly the sets that are parachuted , stays in foreign land and don’t
come back to UK

Thanks Pierre.

I have a set brought back from France. A really well used piece and a joy to look at.

[This makes sense ! Quite a few ended up here and were used extensively by amateurs in the years after WW2. Somebody made an adapter, which could be plugged in a socket in a normal domestic radio.

B2 came in both parachute Version and in suitcase.
