Here is an example of a £5 note from the Second Northern Ireland Series with the signature of G.A. Kennedy. The £5 notes now have a fractional prefix.

I note the serial number is also well above 100000, close to the end of N/A.

The Provincial Bank experimented with new designs in 1946, introducing a lattice pattern to the previous design. These notes are only known in proof form with the Kennedy signature. Denominations of £1, £5 and £10 have been observed. Examples of the £1 and £10 denominations are attached.

Provincial Bank £5 notes with the lattice design are more obtainable than the £1 notes and four dates are known between 1948 and 1952. The 1948 note has a fractional N/B prefix while the later dates have an in-line NB prefix. The reverse design is similar to that of notes issued between 1935 and 1946.

Interesting that the £1 notes are scarcer than the £5.
