TELEPHONE No. 392


Combined table telephone with DC trembler bell for use in CBS No's 1, 2, 3 and Magneto exchange areas and on long lines in CB and Autonatic areas on extension plans.

There is provision in the case for three buttons and the chassis will accept Keys No. 303A and 304A.

Also used on Private Wires.

Bakelite cased telephone with provision for 3 buttons.

Early models had a Filter, Suppression No. 6A fitted across the dial pulse springs.

This telephone had a tray for the subscribers personal directory but as from June 1940 the tray was not fitted and instead the telephone was supplied with a Tray, Dummy, D62099 (a blank plate).  This was probably a war time cost saving, as in late 1947 the tray was re-introduced.
