Your comments:

  • similar to the My Lady Margaret I purchased one of these of e-bay for 10 I think they were dearer to buy originally but with a little TLC it is now in full working order. the advantage of these sets they will work on 240v mains or battery and as the original batteries are no longer available as with the lady Margaret I made my own battery sets so it now works as when it was first manufactured in the 1950,s. I just wish things were as simple today as they were then
