Murphy Radio 1944 Range

The Civilian Wartime Receiver was built by 42 different manufacturers, and each manufacturer was allocated a code number commencing U. The U numbers were known only to the wireless Trade, and enabled service engineers to identify who had made the receiver, as although the design was standard, some manufacturers incorporated minor modifications. The valves for the set were made by most of the current manufacturers, and no makers name was placed on the valve.  However it was possible to tell who made the valve from a code number known to the Trade, which enabled replacements under guarantee to be made. Dr G.D. Reynolds from Murphy Radio designed the set, and some 175,000 were sold before cessation of hostilities. 

Further details and pictures of the Civilian Wartime Receiver may be found here, together with the manufacturer and valve codes here.
