Original German WWII Model FF33 Wehrmacht Field Telephone Set of 2 - Feldfernsprecher 33
Original Item: The feldfernsprecher 33 (FF33) is the standard field telephone of the German military forces of WWII. It is a general purpose field telephone designed for wired communications. It was introduced in 1933 as a modern replacement for the previous WWI legacy field telephones the last of the series being the feldfern-sprecher 26 (1926). The FF33 can also be connected to the Torn. Fu. D2 and Torn. Fu. Bl, and F series radio sets to act as a remote handset.
These two phones are both WW2 dated but unfortunately are missing most of the accessories after long service post war. They are 28 x 21 x 10cm in size and weigh 5.84 Kg with batteries installed. The complete telephone would normally have the following components: a press to talk (PTT) handset, switchboard patch cable, generator crank, shoulder strap, 1.5 volt battery and internal framework for the telephone components.
These two phones are offered in "project" condition, as they are a perfect source of parts for damaged FF33 phones. They also would make great display pieces as part of any WW2 German collection.
Ingeniously designed with what appears to be one traditional wartime style handset, the lid interior of one has built in electrical circuit schematics for informational purposes. Used by the German Army throughout WW2 and continued in service for another 25 years into the Cold War era.
See the book "Deutche Soldaten" by Agustin Saiz, pages 170/171, for more information on the Feldfernsprecher 33 phones.
