Has anyone got a record album or a tone arm rest for the Decca 120/130?
I have looked everywhere!

Try placing a saved search on eBay, where they occasionally turn up. Purchased from the family of the original owner, my Decca 120 is one of my favourite portables.
It has one of the largest horns ever fitted in a portable :

Keep your eye on the "78rpm records-job lot" section of eBay. These record albums frequently turn up there, together with a load of junk 78 you probably won't want!

This is a quite interesting horn, Roger, its bifurcation resemble the design of the Columbia viva-tonal table-tops. The Edison P2 portable also has a very large horn, as well as the colonial HMV116 (the 102 with dual motor and deep case), both with very good sound.
