brochure and is mentioned in both Practical Wireless and Television
and Short Wave Magazine in the second half of 1937. However the set was not actually produced until the latter part of the first half of
It was an almost half hearted attempt to enter the
market. They produced a few sets but in 1939, long before the war,
they were concentrating on work for the military.
A number of TV cabinets ended up being stored at
the outbreak of war but deteriorated so badly that they were
subsequently scrappedPrior to the Viceiver they also produced
sub-assemblies (PSU, timebase etc) for televisions.
I got all this from a chap called Hugh Haynes, who
took over the business from his father just after the war.
