Wireless At War Wireless At War (Reference #WAW)
After 1900, as the potential advantages of wireless technology to the battlefield and for marine warfare became known, interested industrial organisations multiplied, keeping pace with the growth of the armies and navies

That twentieth-century warfare helped to speed the development of radio and electronic communications is important to note.

Describing how warfare has led to improved systems of communications and a progressive diminution in size and weight of apparatus is one of the main objectives of this book.

In following the development of military wireless or radio initially, Great Britain is a major source of Australian inspiration; only later does America appear in the context of military radio used in Australia…

… The book is copiously illustrated with 250 photographs and diagrams. For the enthusiasts there are projects showing how to make some of the radios featured in the book.

The History of the Radio Officer in the British Merchant Navy and on Deep-Sea Trawlers (Reference #BMN)
The History of the Radio Officer in the British Merchant Navy and on Deep-Sea Trawlers by Joanna Greenlaw. The Radio Officer in the Merchant Navy, known to generations of seafarers as 'Sparks', was as integral a part of life on board as the ship's engine room or funnel. Now, with the advent of satellite communication, he (or she) has passed into history. The book is profusely illustrated with considerable material made available by the Marconi Company Archives and individuals, much of it published for the first time. It commences with the story of Gugliemo Marconi's first viable means of communicating by wireless and takes the reader through the entire history of wireless at sea, with special reference to the contribution made by Radio Officers to the safety of life at sea, often at the cost of their own lives. It provides a comprehensive and definitive account of the era of the Marine Radio Officer, and has been commended in a Foreword contributed by His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh.
