The Signals unit were usually of Battalion strength and generally consisted of a Headquarters Company, a Radio Company and a Telephone Company. The Signals personnel utilized a wide variety of radio receivers, field telephones and associated communications equipment in all theaters of operation. One of the typical pieces of communications equipment was the dual throat, (larynx), microphone set which came in a variety of slightly different models for use with specific communications equipment. This example is the model "c", throat (larynx) microphone set as most commonly used in armored vehicles and field radios.
