Default Answering set 1A

Hi folks

I rescued this sad old thing from a bin today, because it was there and I thought it might generate a conversation here. I wonder if anyone knows much about it or has experience with them - there is some blurb at the British Telephones site, which confirmed for me what I thought it might be.

In case anyone has an interest in such things, it will be appearing FOC in the right part of the forum in due course - it would be nice not to return it to the bin! - but meanwhile, perhaps someone can tell me more about it.

Hi Mark,

Doctors surgeries made use of these units & I would assume were classed as rented apparatus.
