Weird HP UK keyboard but with US shaped keys! WTF?

Have HP invented a new layout for UK keyboards?  Photo: https://imgur.com/a/OcX2C

 

The keyboards have the £ key but the return key is horizontal and the right Ctrl key is now a backslash.  They look like US shaped keyboards with UK key stickers.

 

We’re getting complaints from our customers.

Unfortunately I cannot see images hosted on imgur at my work.

 

I've seen UK keyboards in all sorts of layouts and configurations. Not everyone adheres to the 'standard' UK layout.

It looks like HP have started using this keyboard and are just applying UK key stickers.

That is extremely similar to the keyboards we received in 2015 with the desktop refresh. The only difference that I can see, is that it has the slim horizontal Enter/Return key as opposed to a double height one.

That is not the keyboard you posted - noted by the 3 power keys

Oh yes, that's odd. I think this weird keyboard HP are sending us needs its own Wiki page!
