Default Mystery Pye Transistor Portable

...well I am sure it will not be a mystery to someone here! The photos show the radio in question. Unfortunately it bears no model designation, and I am trying to locate a service manual. I am hoping someone can tell me the model code/type? It is a simple MW/LW set but as you can see quite a nice looking set with a nice quality look/feel. I guess it is from the early '60s?

Any help with identification would be appreciated.

Peter

It's a 1355, from around 1963/4. Service data can be had from VRSD.
