You'll be thinking what Brit infra red???? Surely he means Uhu (Owl) used by the Jaaaahmans in late 44/45 ???? Oh no Andy replies, Brit Infra Red... device was codenamed Tabby (get it?) instruction manual included mounting on wide range of vehicles such as jeep, Morris C8, quad, Cromwell and Churchill, Carrier, LVT etc etc. The headset looks akin to modern IR's except bulkier (natch), had a headset web in standard Brit army webbing. When I was at MAT in Beverley I used to be very naughty and put it on-damn it was heavy! I'd love to show you a pic but sadly didn't take any and as to where it now lives I haven't a clue! (the museum had one full set complete with lamp, manual, packing case etc) and a half set)
Oh boy you guys wouldn't have believed some of the stuff that museum had in its archives....pixie suits of course, the Borden complete railway operators training kit -you bet, manuals for every softskin vehicle used in the British army oh yes, and downstairs commando canoe through to a DUKW all now where???????
