    The CVRS received the following email from Brian Carusella. Any help would be most welcome. A photo of a ‘foxhole radio’ is attached.



    I am writing a book about, among other things, improvised radios built by servicemen during the two World Wars. I live in Texas and among the U. S. troops during WWII these were usually basic crystal sets using a razor blade and pencil lead as a detector, and were commonly referred to as “foxhole radios”. I’m pretty sure these caught on with Canadian troops as well, and sure would like to include their stories here, but haven’t found any documentary evidence yet. I was hoping you or any of your members may have heard stories of these or run into an article. Any help or suggestions you may be able to offer will be appreciated!

    Best regards,

    Brian Curusella
