Default wanted: bowens monolite power cable

Something of a long shot, but I have a very old monolite 200 flash unit that's missing it's mains lead. I've hot wired it, so it works, but ideally I could do with the proper plug. These were made in the late sixties and have a sort of three pronged plug. Does anyone have one lying around that I could buy?

I take Bowens were unable to assist?

Do you have an image of one to show what it looks like?

I almost certainly have a spare one which you are welcome to have for the postage cost, post or email photo to confirm.

Edited to add, I just had a quick look to see if I could find a monolight lead so I could photograph and post, couldn't locate one, I found two monolight heads and know I have at least two more stashed away, I must have all the power leads somewhere but finding them may take some time so if you get another more immediate offer I suggest you take it, I will keep looking.

Many thanks, that would be great... there's no rush.
I just took a photo of the socket on my phone and am trying to work out how to post it here... the plugs are long obsolete so Bowens don't have any.



Can't seem to resize it.... its onedrive which is a right...pita

btw... I have a couple of things I've been meaning to send to you Tony...

There is a bloke in DORKING who repairs old Bowens AND has 'spares' -- contact HIM -- tell him you were referred by Peter Elgar of Brentwood who enquired about Bowens repairs recently ;

Thanks Pete I'll see if he can help.

No joy in finding one so far though, so please shout if you have one.

I know I have a lead with that plug, threw out my oldest Monolight last year when I moved house. It wasn't worth another repair, cheaper to get another.

Definitely kept the lead as I always keep the non standard plugs. No idea where I've put it but I'll look later today.
