I know it's way off topic, but I really /did/ use the OC42 in clocks ...
some of them are OC42m ...

  =============================

I culled these when I was at Marconi (UK) 1965-72.

If anybody wants them (one lot), please contact me off the list.

[Sorry John A; I just had to move on this while I am still alive].

With best wishes.
