Radio office of the Maersk Commander from 1973. Kelvin Hughes labels on it, although KH didn't actually make it. This was my pre-Samson morse key days but as I remember it I did like that morse key.

On the Norwegian Ships that I sailed on most of the radio operators had their own morse key's that they took with them from ship to ship was it the same on British ships................

Hi Bob
The KH station was made by DANSK radio and KH badges fitted.
Yes those keys supplied with the gear were far better than the Marconi fitted ones.
One of these stations has recently been transferred from Fort Perch Rock to Internalfire museum in Wales

Ok that's interesting. Next summer I might be up that way and I'll call in there.
