Lost Valve Cover

I have signed up in the hope that someone will be able to help with a little problem. I borrowed a small Bombard last weekend and managed to lose one of the valve covers. The complication is that it was off the one that appears to be a replacement valve. The bow and port side valves are the standard black type, The one I lost is grey. The valve body is grey, outside diameter 66 mm. There is a ring of 8 small 4 mm holes on the face of the valve body. In between two of these is a 3mm square hole containing the knot of the string, which would have retained the cover if it hadn't been broken. Opposite the square hole is a 2 mm hole. The bore in the middle where the actual valve screws in is 29 mm. The distance from the face of the bayonet claws to the sealing ring on the cover is 17 mm. If anyone recognises this valve please let me know as I need to put it right for the owner of the boat.

This is the picture. I hope you can view it. The black cap actually fits, but the correct grey cap does not have the cylindrical section between the seal ring and the handle.
