  An S-band photocathode electron gun designed to operate at repetition rates up to 1 kHz CW has been designed at Diamond and manufactured at FMB*. The first test results of this gun are presented. Low-power RF measurements have been carried out to verify the RF design of the gun, and high-power conditioning and RF test has begun. Initial high power tests have been carried out at 5 Hz repetition rate using the S-band RF plant normally used to power the Diamond linac: the benefits and limitations of this approach are considered, together with plans for further testing.
