Hey Pete...at least this guy tells you it's for "hubgears"...Sturmey Archer I presume? Usually you get nothing.

Also, there were other proprietary threadings with British bikes...Raleigh has 24 tpi...some bikes used Whitworth. I've got two British Hub (BH) fixed hubs that appear to be similar era's...they have different threads. I've got a few doz'n pairs of wingnuts that include several threadings and dimensions. Makes you crazy sometimes. I think I've got some english threaded Hurets but I won't swear to it..
