SECR 12 oak cased drop dial fusee Clock No 1443 SE. The chain driven fusee movement appears to be in working order but has not been tested. The movement backplate is stamped 'G&B, SECRY', the pendulum bob is stamped '1443'. The oak case is complete with its original cast bezel and the back of the box stamped '1443 SE' The original brass 1443 numberplate is present on the inside of the right hand door. The dial retains its post grouping lettering 'S.R. John Walker 1 South Molton street London 1443 SE'. It is certainly very rare to see clocks still lettered SR as most were repainted BR(S). The SR clock records show that it was originally supplied for use at Victoria station carriage sidings cabin and was then transferred to Waterloo 'D' Section stores department. A wonderful example in totally ex railway condition, that would benefit from sympathetic restoration.
