I have been collecting old toys for over 30 years and I thought I would start sharing some of my favorites with everyone. During the 1950s and early 1960s there were tons of cool military toys many of them were made by the REMCO toy company. Here is an example a Marine Communications system. You basically send morse code messages by means of either a click through the handsets or vial a light on top of the control unit. Supposedly you could actually talk through the handsets. As a former 2841 Ground Radio Repairman I can appreciate this device. Oddly enough the equipment I worked on in the Corps was not much more sophisticated.
