I thought I mentioned that bit.  Did I leave it out?  Sorry.

ISO pipe thread is BSP with another name.

IIRC this is the only current standard using the old Whitworth form
and is the only ISO thread based on the inch rather than metric units

For those interested in the minutiae of thread forms and the like as
well as much more seeif you can find a copy of "Machinery's Handbook".
the current edition isn't especially shape but an older, second hand
version will suffice for most home workshops
