Question Looking for PYE Identification


Hoping you can help me identify this old PYE radio that belonged to my grandfather. I came across it today while clearing out the attic.

It was made in the PYE subsidiary company in Dundrum Ireland. I can find little to no information on the Internet about this specific radio and was advised to come you guys for help 😊 I'd love to know the model and year of manufacture?

It simply says Model: 0181, the number here looks like it might be individually stamped onto the radio if that makes a difference 🤷 This "model" no. I can't find attached to PYE anywhere would anyone have any insight? It also has Solid state written on the front.. I believe this means that it is a transistor radio rather than a tube radio, would this be right?

I'm also led to believe that the names of the pirate radio station Caroline and the Isle of Man Station Manx is a pretty unique combination 🤔

Any information kindly received,
Many thanks,
