Default What year is my Lister D engine

Hi, I just brought my very first stationary engine. Its a Lister D engine, I am not sure of the year but have seen people date them from serial numbers and the spec number. The numbers are as followed:

No: 194007

Spec: 26, D H

If anybody could date the engine I would very much appreciate it

Thanks, Dan

I own a 26DH that is late 1945, yours would be 1945 too because my number is 195150. Thats without looking at WWW.STATIONARYENGINE.ORG
