Ship's Radio Marconi HR22, info sought.

I'm not an old seadog but I did work at South Western House, Soton for 25 odd years and could see, from a window, the Liner's coming and going at the old Ocean Terminal.
I was at the time a Radio amateur and some 35 years ago I bought a Marconi HR22 from someone in the area. It said it had been removed from a ship and I think he implied it was used for distributing radio programs to ship's company or passengers.
It seems that from enquiries I made 5 years ago on a radio forum it may be the only one left...They are certainly rare. Does anyone remember this set and can add any info about it..I can't post an image here but it closely resembles a CR100..
