PPN-2 Eureka Homing Beacon

Radio Homing Beacon


Rebecca & Eureka formed a system of portable ground-based beacons and airborne direction finding equipment initially designed to assist the air-drop delivery of supplies to the Allied Armies and Resistance groups in occupied Europe.

Rebecca was a reciever placed within the aircraft, Eureka was a small man-pack transmitter beacon that allowed the aircraft to home in on the beacons location. PPN-1 was used by paratrooper units. PPN-2 by SOE & OSS PPN2 became the post war standard Eureka for airdrops.


Captain Uriah Montgomery is carrying one.
