TELEPHONE No. 326
Combined table handset telephone, introduced in 1937, for use in CB and Auto areas. This telephone had a tray for the subscribers personal directory but as from June 1940 the tray was not fitted and instead the telephone was supplied with a Tray, Dummy, D62099 (a blank plate). This was probably a war time cost saving, as in late 1947 the tray was re-introduced.
