The observant among you might notice that the photograph above is not actually of an R1155 but of a Marconi Receiver Type A.D 8882B, which for all intents and purposes is an R1155 in everything but name. Being the commercial version of the Air Ministry Classic, it is probably rather rare since production of the type ceased around 1947/48. Although not absolutely certain, I believe this one was manufactured in 1947. The inspection stamps throughout indicate that it is a genuine Marconi product.
