You're right (about Yarmouth).  I had forgotten.  It was quite well thought-of among organs in that part of the world.

Davies's electronics were developed from a one-off electrone built by Maurice Grant long before the days of GD&B.  The actual prototype was bought by Maurice Maxfield of Waltham Cross (I remember him from Organ Club meetings many years ago).

I once played the Davies hybrid organ in St. Peter's, Sandwich, Kent.  The Great had pipes but the rest was electronic.  I was 14 at the time, which makes it 45 years ago and I don't remember much about it!
