This is early war timeType 8 for Ground Controlled Interception (GCI). Two outfits like this were needed as the automatic Transmit / Receive switch had not been invented hence one aerial could not serve both Tx and RX. They could be swept from side to side but not rotate. Inside a man pedalled to acieve this. The two had to always to be on the same bearing so that was a bit problematic.
