BELLSET No. 44


Improved version of Bellset No. 39.  It consists of a base unit, complete with switch unit, buzzer, two push buttons and indicator flap. This combination does not contain a bell, a bell was always fitted externally to the unit, along with two R40 Batteries (1.5v each).

Used on extension plans 5 & 7 in Auto and CB areas and has to have a Telephone No. 248 fitted on top.

The press buttons and labels are stored inside the Bellset and fitted, as appropriate, at installation.
