Hi Nobby/Mark,
I attach a copy of the front cover & page 4 of the catalogue I believe is the 1939/40 one. In view if the impending war, I guess production didn't start restart until about 1947 when they may have used the same catalogue. Just a thought!

Well that looks pretty convincing to me Bob!


Over the years I have lifted the images from eBay and the like and probably taken the lister's description of the year of manufacture as a 'given' a time or two.


Even the list that I have may not be 100% correct. I'd put it up here, but I can't find a way to do it...it's in a grid form and transfers as just jumbled text. I don't know if I can transfer it as a document to someone more skilled with Word?

I notice that your Guide talks of factories in Paris and Macon, Bob....surely pre-War then!




Steve, your image with the big orange 'A' is apparently ( I'll have to say that more often now) 1961-62

Good Lord, getting on for 3 years ago.....and I can finally confirm that Bob's Guide IS for 1939. It is the only Guide to feature the famed Aerial Match reel and the last one went on eBay for £30 just the other day!


The next Guide was 1949, but there were some Export catalogues in 1947...Lord knows what was in them...the '49 Guide is littered with references to stuff not actually being available yet......

I'd love to know when the newly made Rapidex,..... and in the case of Allcocks the Flick 'Em .....reel was first available??
