Macintosh 512ke with British keyboard layout


Well-known member
Recently I’ve got international version of Macintosh 512k Extended with the original keyboard. Keyboard has a British keys layout. Booting original System 1-4 I checked key mapping using the Key caps accessory and found that the period key and several others are mapped wrong. However under System 6 all of them work correctly.

My question is: should I look for GB edition of early System 1 - 4 or there’s a tweak for changing keyboard layouts in original US system software?
