Judging from the wording, I feel this fellow is a WWII battle reenactor.
They need comms during a "battle" and figured tearing up a good WWII radio
for their purpose was okay. I think not, but who am I to tell them except
as a rather displeased collector/historian. If they were true-blue
historians they wouldn't alter authentic gear of _any_ sort.
