Antique German Military Phones

A couple of shoppers were in to the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Goodyear today and purchased a pair of German WW2 type Model 33 Wehrmacht Field Telephones, much like the ones in this photo.

I asked them if they collected military items; the guy said he was a military enthusiast, but was going to put these units into service on his farm – If They Worked.

He made a quick trip over to Lowes and was back a few minutes later with a 20 foot section of wire to give them a try. YEP ! They worked!

How cool it will be to see these in action!
