Valve Ephemera: Brimar Advertisements 1953-1955
All from Standard Telephones and Cables Ltd, Footscray, Sidcup, Kent. FOOtscray 3333

1953 advert
May 1953 - Ensign Flies

Continuing the theme from the early Fifties, this advert shows that Brimar must be good because the Navy uses them.  In fact the valves are used in the aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm, "demonstrating their great reliability under the most strenuous of service conditions".

November 1955 - Brimarize

Targeting the valve replacement market this advert shows a reason:- little Johnny has just taken a hammer to Dad's radio.  Of course we would leave a hammer around, and of course, our greatest shock would not be the broken glass, but "my radio!".  Pushes that Brimar supplies British, Octal, Loctal, UX and Miniature.
May 1955 - Brimarize

Continuing to target the valve replacement market this advert shows a reason:-  Dad has just dropped the radio.  Used also in 1956.  Still pushes that Brimar supplies British, Octal, Loctal, UX and Miniature.
 "Now  is the time to Brimarize" Highlights valve 9BW6 as a sound output valve in television and radios receiver and tape recorders.  Also can be used as the oscillator in the bias circuits of recorders and in radios, as a oscillator, amplifier and multiplier.

 "Now  is the time to Brimarize"
Highlights valve 5763 (Mullard equivalent QVO3-12) as a miniature RF amplifier and frequency multiplier in VHF circuits.
