Overhead Electrification Flashes on Southern Region locomotives

Information here is sketchy and contributions are welcome. It appears the both 73A (Stewarts Lane) and 73B (Bricklayers Arms) might have been the first depot on the Southern to start applying electrification flashes during the summer of 1960. Amongst the first locomotives reported as having flashes applied around June 1960 were Bulleid pacifics 34003 /34005 /34016 /34017 /34021 /34022 /34025.
