TRANSITION FROM TYPE 79B RADAR TO TYPE 279B RADAR

In 1946, the very first Operational Radar set at sea [in Rodney and in Sheffield] got the prefix number two [second !] and instead of it being known as the Type 79 [as it had been throughout WW2] it became known as the Type 279B.  In February of 1946, the Admiralty issued a provisional Handbook for the set, which to avoid confusion was called TYPES 79B/279B.  Here is the front cover of that document.
