Default Defiant Radio Story

I found a photocopy of the attached article entitled "Story of Defiants" from the Co-operative News dated 30th July 1991, among some service data I am scanning.

It doesn't belong on a service data CD-ROM but I feel it should be shared.

Enjoy!

... including an early reference to Mr. Scroggie. Strange (or perhaps not) how the same few names keep coming up.

Thanks Paul, its an interesting article and worth downloading.

Contains 70 year old examples of "Rip Off Britain" - eg, GEC abandoning an order for manufacture of radios for CWS half way through, the Co-Op being barred from exhibiting at the Radio Manufacturers Show at Olympia in the early 1930s. With one or two exceptions Defiant were fairly average radios though.
