CAPTURED ENEMY EQUIPMENT

The CHC has a few pieces of captured enemy equipment and the following picture file shows you some of the German Naval Sets, including a U-Boat radio receiver.  We also have a couple of Russian W/T equipments which were seized from the Iraqi forces during the first Gulf War of 1991. Amongst this collection are parts of the radar set which were taken from the wreck of the German pocket-battleship Graf Spee {below} sunk in the shallow waters of the estuary to the River Plate.
