Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Mike, who shares the following from the YouTube channel The Great War.
This short video gives an excellent overview of communications methods and equipment used throughout World War I. I’ve included the video’s description below:
“If one thing was vital to the the new kind of modern warfare in the First World War, it was communications. The Industrial Revolution had brought wireless transmission of signals with it and the huge armies of World War 1 needed to be in contact constantly to be successful in the field. In this special episode we introduce you to the birth hour of modern military communication and signals.”
Thanks again, Mike! I’ll subscribe to The Great War channel on YouTube.

If you enjoy reading about WWI history, I would also highly recommend following The Great War Project blog.
The Great War Project follows WWI as it unfolded 100 years ago. It’s an absolute treasure trove of information and brilliantly written.
