D72 wasn't sold in the UK until quite late I can't remember when it was first available it was years before I heard of Dektol probably the mid 1980's, we had D163 instead which I remember using a few times in the late 1960's.
If you look through the Harrow publication you'll see a few products not sold in the US like Kodinol the Kodak version of Rodinal, D163, I'm not sure if HDD is mentioned that early. There were slightly different traditions in photography in Europe to the US which had an effect on what products were sold.
