The CV5215 is a UK government code for the ECF80.
The triode is the oscillator and has to produce 5 V pk-pk signal. The screened pentode is the mixer. The valve has two cathode connections so that the two valves can be used separately if required.
The triode on the left is located at right angles to the pentode on the right.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter and, excluding the B9A base pins, is 47 mm tall.
References: Datasheet & 1040 Type CV5215 was first introduced in 1954.
