These self-adhesive, peel-off labels are for GEC Avionics in about 1984 and give information about the item being shipped such as the Title, Serial Number and Weight. The next set of information deals with the Order number and Advice Note. Interestingly the contact information still has Telegrams ‘Elliotauto Rochester’ and Telex as well as a phone number with 0634 not 01634; so well before email came in!

The Company had a wide range of stationery which was in use before the days of computers. There were notepads for Internal Communications, Material Requisition, Shipping Labels and Collection Sheets. These often came in different sizes and of course every time that the Company name changes all the old pads were thrown out and new ones published.
