  • $\begingroup$ The plate could be anywhere: top, sides, or back. We cannot tell you where it is $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 10, 2019 at 20:21

    $\begingroup$ I've edited your question to embed the images — this is because questions should (ideally) be meaningful without needing to follow links to other sites, which could change or break and are not as quick to read. $\endgroup$

The construction does not look appropriate for military service. Coast guard, Civil Aviation, emergency services or industry looks more likely. Photographs of the interior may yield more clues. A fixed squelch control may be a clue this was designed for VHF or UHF. It was not common to totally enclose radio equipment without ventilation so this may only contain the remote control circuit.
