Yes - many of the RAF ones were modified, with a different antenna socket and a panel with an on/off-switch and jack-socket fitted below the off/trans/rec switch on the front panel. The socket was for high-impedance headphones.

RAF had their own 'number' for these modified AR88s - they called it the R1556.

There's a thread about this here: https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...ad.php?t=90185 and a photo of one in use here: https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...4&d=1352667668
