From a US Army document called "Statistics-Procurement" published in 1952 the US made 30,545 WS48s and 28,995 hand generators.

They also made 86,702 of the American version of WS19 MKII.

It's said that an army marches on it's stomach could explain why the US Army procured 1,617,117 quarts of whisky.

For this set you can find two different cable with 5 pins connectors for the generator hand 10 watts MARK II.
The difference is the size
The one on left, 110cm, and the one on the right 214cm.

Hello
My last little comeback, the static battery specific to the WS48 which completes my set. Even if I knew about it because it is pictured in the manual, a great first for me to see one in real life

That's the same as the two part batteries that Chris S. donated to my 11 set cause. I made the missing lids from a sheet of black Tufnell, what fun getting all the drilled holes in the right place.
Like you I was really chuffed to be able to complete my station with these final rare parts. Ron
