    There's been another one of the above on Ebay that some bugger's got for a bargain (not this one, though). Putting that aside, the seller included a few key pages, one of which has 'Sexton' in semi-official use from 1943:

    Equivalent manuals ought to exist for other equipments that might shed further light on names.
