Info on GB (Gerry Burgess) "Forged" stem?

Anyone with access to old GB catalogs know anything about these stems? Velobase has an entry, but it's nothing more than a picture, and I'm not coming up with anything on my own thus far.

GB was probably one of the most successful post war company in Britain... they really dominated with their brakes which were superior to everyone else's and their stems are also very well made.

They stopped building brakes in the 1970's but the production of stems and bars continued into the 90's and GB returned to the market in 2011 with new products through a partnership with Pashley of England and will only be found on British made bicycles.
