The small Mullard thyratron Z803U, (CV2434), is used in no less than 7 places, as relay drivers, in the Muirhead D-649-L/E1 'Mufax Chart Recorder'.

The 6AS6 valve is used in two (as V3 and V22, valve complement in page 18 of pdf-file) interesting functions.

This Mufax Chart Recorder was chiefly used for drawing wheather charts on 18 inch wide paper. The attached maintenance manual is dated 6 July 1965.
