I thought it was Advent Imaging, but anyway...
Advent were a major user of PERQs in the UK at one time. I got my T4 (!)

I would guess these are PERQ disks. You could try mounting them on a POS
machine and/or using the floppy program (they may well be 'interchange
format' (close to RT11...) disks).
