GT1C / CV1128 / NGT2 / VGT128 / 10E/15 triode thyratron, and GT1CSS solid-state replacement
This thyratron found many uses as a timebase for radars, and in particular many were used in the Colossus computer which was used at Bletchley Park to crack the codes of the German Lorenz cipher machines. See http://www.codesandciphers.org.uk/lorenz/index.htm, http://www.codesandciphers.org.uk/lectures/ieee.txt and http://www.codesandciphers.org.uk/virtualbp/vcolossus/colossus.htm for further information.
