Marconi Image Orthicon scanning yoke

This yoke, for a 3 inch tube, is from a Marconi MkI camera. The tube is inserted into the yoke from the front and in the foreground is the retaining disk that clips in place.

 

In this photograph the yoke is upside down. When installed in the camera the plate at the bottom, in the picture, is at the top!
