Accurate intelligence and secure lines of communication are crucial elements to all armies in the field and during WWII each division in the German Army had an integral Signals unit.

The Wast 1aBunker Phone was the precursorto the standard Wast 18 and M38 Bunkers phones.

Made by Seimens of solid steel, bakelite, and aluminum, and designed to practically withstand nuclear attack, this phone is in AMAZING used condition!The steel main door in secured tightly with triangular bolts, and when when open, reveals all the internal electrical components, which remain in near MINT condition! Various manufacture marks and stamps, and the main data plate on the front clearly indicates "Wast 1a".

Dated 1940, it features the original insulated cord, leading to the main handset (earphone and mouthpiece), as well as secondary connections for other equipment.
