WHERE USED/FITTED

HF Attachment fitted with Type 2 or Type 4 from which the power supply is obtained. By this time, these two Type Systems were anywhere between 15 and 20 years old. That is no problem! As I write this the RN still have Type 42 destroyers fitted with ICS2 and that is 33 years old to my certain knowledge! Spark transmitters in the RN went from Type 1 to Type 13.
