Thank you.Yes, being pedantic they are mercury vapour rectifiers as there was no arc once they had been started. The arc was created by an springy electrode that was pulled down to dip into the pool of mercury to create a spark to vapourise some of the mercury. A plasma discharge then continued to maintain the vapour.
They were used to provide the 660 volt DC traction supply for London Underground,
