Default What are the tubes in this 5WS?

Has it been re-socketed, or are there equivalents to RS-241s?

The tube base seems to be octal, so i guess this is post war modification
possibly by some HAM.

And looks like the sockets are unmodified.

The markings are too faint to read.
They are a little bit bigger than RS241.
The internals look similar.
They may be an alternative production of RS241, or are some period correct equivalent at least.
But no definite answere, sorry.

Regards,

Ton.
