This valve has been in the museum for some years but could not be identified. Recently (2015) a Frelat valve was sold on ebay and looked like the mystery valve. Close re-examination showed faint indications of the Frelat logo as well as the words Made in Holland.
Frelat valves were made by M Heussen & Co of Arnhem in the Netherlands and exported to the UK between 1926 and 1928. This time frame would indicate a dull emitter valve rather than the 'bright' of the R Type and so the Type designation may be incorrect.
