Default PB plug

Can anyone give me an idea of the spark plug originally fitted to a 1939 Ruston PB 3HP.
Thanks

My 9pb was fitted with a 8 com when I found it and to be honest it had been there for a very long time!

Probably be whatever plug the manufacturer could buy cheapest as each batch of engines was completed!
