Chassis Notes(most schematics can be clicked to download a full size version)

Schematic not held, any details would be appreciated.  Appears to use early 6- and 7-pin valves - may have been designed to use up old stocks?  Octals were well and truly in widespread use by now and had been for at least a couple of years.
