Default 408 wiper arms - any 3rd party replacements?

Does anybody know a part number, or make/model of a car using suitable wipers, for the wiper arm of an RHD 408, please? The parts book lists it as Lucas 54711438 and I can't find anything that cross-references to that but my car has Trico (Made in England) ones fitted. one has lost the clip that retains the arm on the spindle so I need a replacement.

Thanks

David

Tex have a search facility and recommendations for several Bristol cars but I have to confess my first stop for items like this is also eBay, Tex I have always found to be good quality but some of the repro stuff on the market is total crap so I always go for Tex wiper blades.
If there is an eBay listing for the original arms as David C has identified I would recommend you go with those even if they are a bit more expensive.
Geoff.
