excuse my lack of knowledge, but is that the kind of thing that would be housed in a floodlight trailer shed on an RAF base?? I'd always thought it'd of been one of those large diameter items somehow??

Not having the archive Paul has, the best I can offer are some screen grabs from the Pathe News web site (will remove if anyone objects). Sorry about the quality but I had to do a full screen grab. Film dates from 11th March 1943 at the start of the "Wings for Victory" campaign.
