Mine's a lot tattier than yours mate (the satchel's probably protected it well), but from what I can see, the serial number is 2012, not far away from yours.

I doubt if 2000+ of these ugly brutes were sold. They were more likely "numbered" by just the last 2 digits! ;)

When I get around to cleaning my front panel I will just wash it down with a damp rag

Dave I like the radio it has a vintage look about it . I too struggle to understand why it had the case on the radio inside but I like it.
Sounds like you picked up a little limited number as I never saw one ever in the day.

It is a very strange set up to a point that the speaker is covered 3 times.
I knew they existed but only seen 3 or 4 for sale in the past 20 year's.

It would be interesting to hear from other owners to gauge the amount that was sold.

Wow I am impressed that at least 39 have been sold.

Thanks for responding to the thread

As long as it doesn't collide with the switches and LEDs you'll be okay, apart from it overlapping the sides somewhat :)

I popped into the Toolstation clearance centre in Bridgwater todsy whilst passing and picked up a 2.1Ah battery for only £4.99. If I can be bothered to take the Westward apart one of the days, I'll change the battery.
The other battery I had as a freebie a while back is much too small Ah-wise, looking at Dave's that he kindly pictured.
