Aging process

Hi.
I was a member of arrse many years ago. I though I would rejoin and see what goes. I did NS in the Royal artillery, 46(m) HAA at Bulford. Three months after demob, I joined the RAF, learned a trade and worked on Lincolns and Canberras. Now at 79 I put time in at the local aviation museum. I served 30 years with Air Cadets, received the Long Service and bar and the Commandants Commendation. The medal goes well with my GSM (Malalya) Any idea where I can get a 19 or 22 radio set?

We had 19 sets in our CCF which were stencilled in Russian, as they were part of a consigment destined to help Uncle Joe.
Plus the wonderous SR 88, Teleset J and the Switchboard Magneto 10, happy days!

SM10? Rings a bell - if you'll pardon the pun. I have this gut feeling we were still using them on the BAOR FLOT in the late 70s. Mind the way my gut is rumbling today that could be anything.
