@HalfPintRoo: That is cool! Your Dad I mean.

"War Tubas" were for listening for the sounds of aircraft engines. They funnel the quietest sounds along the tubes into the listener's ear(s) which amplifies the sound.

When it`s really quiet? Especially at night? You can hear the drone of the engines from a long ways off! Then triangulate the sound to pinpoint their exact movement. Worked pretty well in the Pacific Ocean! Not as well as RADAR of course...
