First startup of the repaired Air Ministry 20kVA Mk.2 genset

After making some repairs to the engine and fitting a new coupling to the alternator, we are ready for the first test run and the important moment of seeing the bulbs light up. The Lister 38/4 (JP4) diesel engine drives a Metropolitan vickers 20kVA 3-phase alternator to produce either single or three phase output. It was built in 1945 to power a radar installation such as the type 14, then later fitted into this box trailer and used to supply a mobile X-ray truck used in the nationwide health-screening program for TB in the late 1940s and 50s.
