Good Morning Jack,

We have been conducting preliminary searches in the hope to locate the handbook you are requesting and release it to you administratively. To date, similar handbooks have been located, but not the specific one you have requested.

Would you like to withdraw your inquiry or shall I turn this into a formal FOI request in an attempt to locate the handbook (if it exists)?

I look forward to your response.

Regards,

Dear Nicole,

The identification plate has been scratched in this area, and the description (ie. Manf date) is not readable. However, I can see 6.69 stamped next to this and have to assume that 1969 is the manufacture date of the unit.

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards
Jack

Good afternoon

Please find attached documents in relation to old 15KVA generator sets. These documents are being released to you administratively outside of the provisions of the FOI Act.

The age of the generator indicates that the documents for this request would be in the open access period, meaning that documents prior to 1991 would need to be requested under the Archives Act through the National Archives of Australia.

The documents that have been provided may not match the exact requirements of your request but may be able to provide you with some guidance in relation to the generator that you have.

Research has shown that the company that manufactured this particular generator has not been in business for some time. Indications are that the company stopped manufacturing in the mid to late 1970's.

There are some patents registered for manufacturing equipment for Cornish and Crump held by the National Archives Australia. National Archives of Australia may be able to assist you to obtain the information that you require.

Our office would be grateful if you could respond to this email and withdraw your formal FOI request.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards
