The HA2 is a Marconi valve by M-OV that duplicates the American 955. The acorn valves were designed to have low capacitances and therefore work to higher frequencies than the normal valves.
The 955 was introduced by RCA in 1934 and the UK made devices did not achieve the success of the American product and acorn valves were black-listed for UK government equipment use.

The tip to tip length is 32 mm and the envelope is 13 mm in diameter.
