Default What's this knob from?

Quiet at the back, please!
Digging the garden I came across this TV tuner knob which I can't identify. It's unusual in that it's only 50mm wide. The channel numbers are grouped BBC-ITV (ours were 2,10) and there's a U position, so it's a dual standard. I thought Sony, but it's not like the 9-90 I've got. Any ideas?

Give the man a coconut! Of course it would have had the outer wheel surrounding it. And I have one in the shed as well.
Now how on earth did it get into the garden?

You'll need to dig a bit deeper for the rest of the set!

It is not the only bit of well earthed vintage technology we have seen recently.
Have a look at post#239 in this thread.
