Tim VAOS Section XA is quite old, even in a VAOS of 1943, X is subdivided into:


X1 Searchlights, sound locators & associated stores

X2 Generating sets & general lighting stores


So I assume XA predates the division so your item would could fall in either of the above categories. But it is not YA (Line & visual) or ZA (Wireless etc)

As there was nothing on the tele I was perusing some VAOS. :D


I see this 1970 VAOS Section X1 includes earlier XA items associated with the electrical supply for searchlights.


These being XA + 5 digits suggest to me your item has some associated role. I realise the digits are higher than your item but this is from a list 30 years on. I know these are not your items but have a look & see if you get the same feeling.
