weird find: papertape "patch" puncher

Hi all,

Recently I found this really cute, but weird-looking thingie. It
seems to be a handheld tool that allowed operators, field engineers
and so on to manually punch a bit of code onto paper tape, or to
modify (patch) an existing tape.

It was made by, or distributed by "Data Processing Accessories"
in the U.K.

Ideas, anyone?
