Domestic: Pilot Radio's Jack and Blue Peter

This trader advert from May 1950 describes two radio models  from the Pilot Radio range.  The model names follow a nautical signalling flag theme.  The Pilot Log is just a fancy tuning glass printed with designer station listings.  Two colour and inside front cover placement for maximum impact.  Whilst the Jack is of typical design for this period, the Blue Peter is a bit of an oddity.
