Talking Sobell S325 found in skip with Caroline.

No, it's Radio Caroline! Found a Sobell S325 transistor radio today in a skip. Put a battery in it and it works.
It has 4 wavebands - LW, MW, MWbandspread and SW. The bandspread goes from about 190mtrs to 215mtrs and has "Caroline" and "Luxembourg" on it.

Please tell me I'm wrong but I've never seen a radio with "Caroline " on the dial before. Must be just me, I suppose. Was it common to have this?

Regards, John.
Now that's the kind of Long Wave I like ! (Severn Bore near Gloucester)
