Smile Re: Another unusual plug and some other questions

I've got a Walsall gauge plug & socket like that. The socket is actually made by Walsall and the plug is marked 'Sainsbury's' but carries no maker's name. The plug also contains some kind of suppressor or vdr in the cover connected between all three pins via springs. It may be intended for EPOS use (Electronic Point Of Sale). The base of the plug is moulded in such a way that it could accept another fuse holder on the neutral side if used for another variant.
Cheers, Pete.
