Strange Field Phone - EE-8-B?

I have this field phone that stumped me when I was inspecting it. It doesn’t seem to have a place for batteries and it has a different handset than what I typically see. The phone is dated 1944. I was told by someone that it was an artillery phone, but I wanted to see what other people thought. If more photos are needed to tell let me know. 

 

Thanks!

Yep, that looks about right! Is there any special purpose they were used for or were they used in the same role as the EE-8-B?

I have understood that these were good for front line units, because they could be made to not ring and they didn't need batteries.  I can't remember what the what the range was, but they were good for forward listening posts to communicate with the defenses behind them.  

 

I can't document this at the present time, so it's just an opinion.
