The DL33 (3Q5GT) is a dry battery audio output pentode. The directly heated filament is only rated for DC use. Even at 2.8 Volts, with the centre tap grounded, the AC hum would be impossible to live with.
This is an imported valve with the term Foreign added to the glass to point out that this was not a British product.

The top mica. The filament tensioning springs can be seen as fine wires. The filament is kept straight as it passes through the grids by being held in a diamond shaped hole in the top mica with the springs pulling away at an angle.
The wide glass tube envelope is 29 mm in diameter, and excluding the IO base pins is 61 mm tall.
