Default Philips B5W32AT

Hello everyone,
I have recently been fortunate enough to acquire this set and I find that it uses a strange inline socket for the Pick-Up!

Could any of you identify the socket and tell me what this type is called?

Also do any of you know where I might obtain a plug to fit it?

Regards
Trevor.

I remember hearing this radio for the first time many,many years ago and I was struck by the sound quality.No sharp sizzling sound so often heard from japanese radios with push-pull output stages full of crossover distortion due to almost nonexistent quiescent current.
I just had to open it and find out what caused the good sound quality and to my surprise I spotted a single OC26 and a output transformer.
Good old ckass A with a standing current of 0.5 amps!
