Have a No. 80 fuse in aluminium, rather than the normal brass version. The markings include:-

11/16 presumably the date

capital L

80

capital R followed by large broad arrow, then capital L

what looks like capital C followed by a letter o or number 0

111 which has been struck out by a single line, with a dot to the left

80 with a line under it, with 44 below that

23 over 16 this accompanied by a small broad arrow.

Were the aluminium ones manufactured for a specific purpose? They seem to be quite scarce.

Mike.
