NOTES What is this ? Three years into the era of the rectangular CRT, and with 90-degree CRT's on the horizon, here we find a set with a round C.R.T. !!! And it has been even longer since it was necessary to have an EHT smoothing capacitor.

Other than that, the chassis is fairly standard, seeing duty in a variety of Ekco, Ferranti and Dynatron sets over the next few years.
SERVICE DATA A copy of the Trader servicesheet 1278/T115 is available on the TV Service Data CD.
CURRENT STATE The cabinet is a bit battle weary but all the bits are there.
WHERE FOUND December 2003 BVWS auction at Wotton Bassett for £2.
No longer in the collection.

Unbelievable ! A round CRT plus a seperate EHT cap
(black thing mounted on upper CRT frame support).
Surely not for 1956 (not even H.M.V.!)
