- See 'Clockmaking in England and Wales in the Twentieth Century : the industrialized manufacture of domestic mechanical clocks' by John Glanville and William M. Wolmuth, Crowood Press , 2015 p 143-144
This chiming clock with only two trains has a similar movement to that shown on pages 143-144, though this example has only 5 gongs. It is not clear whether it was made by Gillet & Johnston, or by F.W.Elliott who took over production of their clocks in 1923.
