ah ! thanks ( I think  :) )

In my quest for originality I shall of course wish to replace like with like on the Bond D - but I have never before come across fuses exactly like those fitted by the previous owner;
Q. should I keep trying to find these single stranded fuses  :D
confused of Wirral  ;D

Those are someone's nasty attempt to replace the original fuses - which should of course be a match trimmed to length which then has the silver paper from a packet of Capstan Navy Cut cigarettes wrapped around it. 

The silver paper from other cigarette brands works just as well, though obviously you would lose points when judged at a Bond Owner's Club Concours event for having incorrect parts fitted.....

You could probably use a side panel or one of the more malleable parts off the Gordon if nothing else is available.

Wouldn't it be easier to solder in a panel pin across the joint. You get lots for the price of a fuse.  ;D
