WW2 10F/7741 Type F Bathtub Military Morse Key

This iconic WW2 10F/7741 Type F Bathtub Military Morse Key is being sold as a collectible for display only.

It is in fair used condition with a few scuffs and blemishes, commensurate with age and use. However, there is some damage to the bakelite, which has broken off on one side of the key: (please see image with the main area of damage marked by a white rectangle). There is also a crack above the hinged part of the key and chips on the inside (see images). The price has been adjusted to reflect the condition.

Approximate Key Dimensions (WHD): 13.5 x 7 x 4 cm

As used in RAF Lancaster, Halifax and Wellington Bombers, in conjunction with the T1154 Radio, during WWII: see photo. It is commonly known as the bathtub as it is shaped like an old fashioned British 'bath tub!'

A clip holds the bathtub key cover closed and can also be extended to depress the edge of the knob so that a signal can be sent continuously in the event of an emergency. The fact that the key is totally enclosed meant it could also be used in a flameproof environment.

A great find for all collectors of military keys or radio communication aficionados!
