But can you show more photos, of each side? Maker's labels, which I see two of but can't read? How did you come by it?

First wild stab in the dark is a public address amplifier.

Receiver for amenities areas (mess halls, etc) made by Australian Sound Systems (Cadet Radio).

Band selection (broadcast vs short wave) done by unscrewing the section below the knobs and inverting it.

Schematic, too: http://www.tuberadio.com/robinson/Australian_radios/V5_cct.gif
