Telephones of WW II
majority of field telephones supplied to the Red Army from the USA have been
purchased by Amtorg Trading, a New York corporation with 100-percent USSR
Signal Corps EE-8-A and EE-8-B field telephones were modified to accommodate a
pair of 2C (2S) dry batteries of USSR manufacture. The leather bags of EE-8
telephones supplied to the Red Army were about 1 1/2" wider than
regular EE-8 bags (WHD = 230 х 250 х 90 mm).
was probably due to this leather bag extension why no model identification could
be found neither on EE-8-A nor on EE-8-B telephones supplied to the Red Army on
identifications on the telephones as well as their schematics have been made in
Russian (Cyrillic) letters. There was an instruction
manual in Russian supplied with each field telephone.
