Nice radios thanks for showing. I suppose these type of era portable radios similar to a cased crosley like the zenith shown would most probably be a private purchase by anyone in the services who had an ear for music and radio shows.

Now this one isn't mine but it's an example of a privately owned radio in the military. The Zenith portables were by far the most popular.

I like the artwork. Thanks for showing. I am sure there were other radios private purchase they used just wondering what the rules and regs were of playing these in camp and on the front during R&R.
