Remember When? One of my favourite son-in-laws really loves collecting memorabilia, especially when it comes to our proud military history. He bought this R1155A radio receiver at a garage sale, and it came complete with the original packing case and is in good condition. These units were used for vital communications in the Lancaster bombers and some tanks during the Second World War, and can be discovered along with many other war-time treasures by avid collectors throughout the world.
