DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE SALS MACHINE?
Any ideas about this? What does "SALS" mean? And the date of January 28th 1944? Clearly it's some sort of emergency systems device with a lot of lamps and pushbuttons, and that is a map of PARIS, but if you know any more about the history of this, the owner of this machine would like to know.
Bombardment? Hospitals? Priests? Bicycles? A curious set of lamps and controls for organising some kind of effort in the 2nd World War, in France. It's thought not to be a secret cipher machine like Enigma or anything like that as it's been opened up and found to contain just the lamps, buttons, and a system of wiring. But the history of it has probably a story to tell, if we could talk to people who know.
If you can help on this, please e-mail and I will forward it.
