Probably refers to the angles.
One thing you can be certain of, it had absolutely no connection with Claud Butler. It might be from the Holdsworthy Company, or whoever owned the name after.
Show us some detail pics.

Neat little bike, the number on the bottom bracket must be some sort of identity number, not angles.
Looks mid to late 70s.

Somehow I was looking at a blue bike very small frame, must be the wrong one.
The forks I see now have a very cheap pressed crown.
