My own knowledge is thin but I would gladly contribute to such a project or help in the research that goes with it!
They were new in 1937, so would be among the first ECW Federation bodies built, after the changeover from ECOC at Lowestoft, and even though they were of so called uniform "Federation" style, there is something about them which cannot be explained, but which points to Lowestoft construction beyond doubt!
