Notes:

Like many large organisations GEC Avionics had a range of hand-outs as gifts at Air Shows and Open Days and a Beer Mat was a popular one.

This is a square mat showing a Liquid Crystal colour display face. These displays were produced by Ferranti and were continued after the takeover by GEC- Marconi Avionics so they date from between 1994 to 1998.
