marconi: P17B vs US 1940s Personal Radio

How different can you make a "lunch box" portable? Actually quite different, but very similar style to  the GM 985775 Pocket Portable. However the chassis is quite different. The Marconi like the indentical insides Ever Ready Personal B, uses a Plessey Moving coil speaker quite like a 1960s model in appearance and an Ever Ready B114 combination battery pack. The GM uses a Reed moving iron speaker and a separate "D cell" for LT/"A" supply.

See the thread about BP10 and other Personal Radios of 1940 & 1941.
