English: A pair of Australian signallers, each wearing a headphone set, are listening in on an early Marconi Mk III crystal shortwave tuner set. The men are probably conducting a training excercise at the signalling school at Broadmeadows, Vic. The banded pole (right) supports an aerial. Identified, but position unknown is 1349 (later Staff Sergeant) Albert Joseph Egan, who ended the war attached to 3 Squadron, Australian Flying Corps, (AFC). Note the wooden lid to the wireless set in the background. The Marconi Mk III crystal shortwave tuner set could receive only, and was developed in 1915. It was used during the First World War until it was superceded by superior models such as the Marconi Mk IV set, which could receive and transmit.
Français : Australiens, chacun porte une paire d'écouteur, écoutent sur un récepteur à cristal de Marconi Mk III. Les hommes conduisent probablement un excercise de formation à l'école de signalisation chez Broadmeadows, Vic. Le poteau soutient une antenne. L'inconnu, mais de position est 1349 (plus défunt Sergent) Albert Joseph Egan, qui a fini la guerre attachée à l'escadron 3, les corps australiens de vol, (AFC). Noter le couvercle en bois de l'ensemble TSF. L'ensemble de Marconi Mk III pourrait être uniquement un récepteur à cristal, et a été développé en 1915. Il a été employé pendant la première guerre mondiale jusqu'à ce qu'il ait été superceded par les modèles supérieurs tels que l'ensemble de Marconi Mk IV, qui pourrait recevoir et transmettre.
