I think this is the correct cap, check the dimensions:

This one is for a Herald

Rimmer, James Paddock, and others do Triumph spares .. but none have a specific Herald fuel cap in stock

This is one for Spitfire .. (Triumph not the flying type!)

Reading some info on forums, it seems the Herald has THREE locating lugs ..
