Tornister Empfanger B Torn Eb German WWII Receiver & Battery Box, dated 1942 and complete battery compartment, power cable, vibrator pack and plate, 2B38 battery, both covers and  a photocopy of the instruction label. 

The set consists of two units that are clip-able together above each other, the radio receiver and power supply box. The cabinets were meant to be carried on the back of a soldier, and the units are called Tornister' and Empfanger the German word for receiver, the letter 'b' in the designation simply indicates which receiver type.

The designator was shortened to Torn E b. The Torn E b was created around 1935/36. It was in general use with the German Signal Corps, but also at higher army staffs, police and traffic control authorities.

It includes the very rare vibrator pack and hard to find power cable and battery box.

Overall condition is very good with all dial and knobs appearing to operate normally. The set is of course not guaranteed to be in working condition. The only point of note is the strap holding the battery in place which is broken.
