So was Danielson and Mayoh!
Only valid for us nostalgic old Bs now who still play with the old kit.

Noting the several references to 'Danielson & Mayoh' I at first thought this was some obscure joke as per the Sahib's No. 6 post; (on the lines of 'lettuce, tomato but hold the mayo!'). Having now researched the names on Google I have to share my complete ignorance of their, obviously well-respected, book. I did my ticket at Plymouth in the mid 60s, and we all realised that we were actually off the edge of the world, which ended at a line between Bristol and Southampton. Rumour had it that the PMG examiners carried their passports when visiting us. We had no textbook, everything came from the mouths of the lecturers; one had to write very quickly and rely on classmates for the missing bits! Perhaps that is why only four out of an intake of 25 actually made it to sea.

We used no textbooks during the MRGC course at Lowestoft in the early 70s, only copious typed/hand-written notes produced by the lecturers, notably Bill Holton. These were reproduced on an old-style duplicating machine - one got mildly p****d on the meths fumes when a new section was handed out!

I can't remember when I got my copy of Danielson & Mayoh but it wasn't until well after I went to sea. It was published in 1966.
They also produced some Marconi training manuals such as the "Atalanta" Receiver type 2207C Handbook Ref. R (S) 37.
Both of them had 1st Class PMGs as well as other professional qualifications.
I've lost all my PMG and BOT Radar notes but I've still got all my MED notes.
An awful lot of time spent writing or trying to decipher terrible Gestetner duplicates. (Whaaa)

That's a coincidence my house is having a major refit and I must move out - threw my Renton's out last week - wonder why I kept it all these years - never used it much in College and never looked at it since !!!

Renton's was required material for the Part 1.
Radio and Line was a supplement, but i found it hard to take.
My copies of the Hughes's textbooks were well thumbed by the time i got my
ticket, though it didnt pay any part in the teaching schemes of work......

sad really, as they were a lot more readable than the R+L .

Renton's! Now that's jogged a memory or two. A big blue hardback book if my memory serves me correct. I'd forgotten all about it until you mentioned it Sparkie! Heavy reading in more than one sense of the word. got me through my City & Guilds, though.
