Smile Re: Another unusual plug and some other questions

The hospital I worked at had those 30amp sockets in the older parts and I think they had an interlocked switch above the socket. Later on special 13amp sized plugs were introduced that were designed to take extra thick cable. They were of an unusual shape, red and unfused. Possibly made by Walsall. Some sockets above the beds had red switch rockers and I assume these were fed from a dedicated supply for the portable X-ray machines. Of course, the machine could be used from any 13amp socket in an emergency.
Cheers, Pete
