I think (!) the pads are the same as Rover SD1 and possibly late MGB? Alterpart will have the details I'm sure.

Yes, SD1/Stag/Sherpa/some MGB and some others (or at least some models of those). I don't have a part number to hand, I'll have to dig out a box tomorrow.

Here's an update to close off this thread; I took the pads out, one is labelled "Lucas GDB340" which used on the Stag etc, as advised above.
Widespread availability, so I'll get some before the brake fluid change.
Thanks everyone for relevant info.
