    @ilikeart~it is what some of us thought to be a "unique" item. seems there are three of us so far that i have found on this sight.
    @ttom~i saw your phone and it is a bit different. there is another one on here that they say they have hooked up and is actually being used as a dial phone.

    Could "CH staff" be Chief of Staff?

    My Dad and Brother are/were both Navy. Dad served on the Shangrila and the O'Bannon. Not sure what ship my brother was on. He has passed away and we don't have any of his military records.

    I found a picture of the same model phone installed on the USS Salem,
    a heavy cruiser WWII era on the following site. I also have a phone like this.

    I just saw a phone like this on 'American Pickers'. Unfortunately I didn't get to see what was said about it. I'll have to look up the Monday April 23rd. episodes.
