FT 17 + Mark V STAR

Hello, everyone here. Does anyone please know the purpose of these devices at the dances ? Was it back in WW I, or is it a post-war adjustment?

Thank you very much in advance for you reply. Ivo FT17.jpg

These are from the photo archive at the American WWI Museum in Kansas City. Charlie and I noticed that some of the captions were rather wide of the mark, and the Museum allowed us to make corrections. Whether they've updated the site, I don't know, but they said it would have to be done when time permits. I can't remember now what alterations I suggested, but it seems obvious that they're radio aerials.

The top one was obviously a prototype for hanging out the washing before they got to the Siegfried Line!!

Don't be silly. It's obviously a motorised deckchair.

Thank you for the basic information. Please, is it possible to find more information or pictures, drawings? I have never seen the Ft 17 TSF in this version. So did Mark V STAR.

Thank you in advance. Ivo
