The Marconi radio from World War I was paired with the Trenches transmitter. The receiver came from Italy and has a pack of vintage Italian batteries in the wood box on the left side of the picture. It was converted from a crystal detector to a 3 R valve set at sometime later. This is a rare piece of working WWI communication equipment.
