G-8A/GRC Hand Cranked DC Military Field Generator
This G-8A/GRC hand cranked generator disassembles and is light enough to be carried by hand. The generator is capable of powering a radio set, crypto gear, rechargeable batteries, and other electronic equipment in the field.
This generator is part of the 10th Mountain Division Collection because it was donated by a 10th Mountain Division veteran. It is noted on the receipt for deposit that the generator was never used. It is speculated that it could have been obtained through Army surplus. The date range has been determined by dates marked on literature accompanying the generator and is post World War Two.
