I've got a couple of Ambassador and Pentara terminals on display in the lounge now.

Okay...the "Big Ones" where as the matching "Small Ones" are POTS phones. So this system likely supported POTS (analog) phones and used these proprietery digital phones for reception positions etc.

I've been a bit busy since I last posted...

As well as the Ambassador telephones in Brown, Stone, and ones in Grey and Yellow, and the 2 Herald terminals, there are also Tyne and Trent repertory diallers (one has an LED display), and a Melody handsfree unit (made by Panasonic who had their version in brushed steel effect top and woodgrain sides in their Easa Phone range - the volume slider and buttons on the BT one are still in Panasonic grey)
