Default Re: GPO Bakelite Phones - the end?

I joined POT in 1967 and I don't ever remember seeing a new Bakelite phone, replacements always came from wipe up.

I was on subs amp maintenance in 1968 and there was a 1.00 charge for a 700 type telephone. This upset some customers who would "accidently" break their Bakelite phone hoping to get a 700 type FOC.
