Default 1930's/40ís radio ID please

1930,s/40’s radio id please

Picked this set up at the weekend can anyone id it please
Valve on right is marked LP2 the left one is harder to read pos HL2 ??

The white label on right hand side has written on it:

This set is designed for use with British
Valves marked BVA of the type specified
In out printed instructions issued with this receiver

So I guess it was a kit complete with case as case looks professional made.

Can anyone id it please, and a copy of the instructions would be even better.
Cheers
Vince

Looks more 1920s to me, albeit modded at a lated date

Tuning escutcheon and drive etc seem to be the same as this Ekco: http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/ekco_ekcolectric_sgp3.html

I'm not sure, hopefully someone can ID it.
HP2 and LP2 came out 1930 and 31 according to the Valve Museum.

Looking through Wireless World in the late 20s early 30s that tuning mechanism/escutchion that Nick identified does appear to be unique to the Ekco P2 and P3 receivers.

I noticed that too. Maybe they just bought from the same supplier.
