12 Y1

The CRT is normally operated with Anode 3 and the internal coating tied so manufacturers were free to tie these internally if needed.

Looking at the screen with the base spigot upwards, a positive voltage on X1 will deflect the beam left and a positive voltage on Y1 will deflect it upwards.
