1960s Military Type 16A Bakelite Microphone Hand Set ZA 32986. New Old Stock

This wonderful looking piece of militaria is a 1960s Military Type 16A Bakelite Microphone Hand Set ZA 32986. New old stock.

A hand-held carbon microphone with push-to-talk button. Used with British military transmitters. Forums suggest that it will work with the 18 set, 62 set and the remote units of the 22 set, but I am unable to confirm this. 

It comes in its original box labelled T1 ZA 32986 Microphone PPQ-1

Made from black bakelite and stamped with Microphone Hand No.16A ZA. 32986/ ZA 12672 on the mouthpiece and ZA 25004 on the cord. It doesn't have a plug.

A 'see-saw' on/off switch is mounted on the side

Marked with the military broad arrow 

Approximate Handset Dimensions:

  • Face Diameter: 6.5 cm
  • Height:  17 cm
  • Max Depth: 3.5 cm

In excellent cosmetic condition, with a few surface scuffs/blemishes commensurate with age and storage. 

A nice bit of military history to add to your collection!
