Instrument cluster bulbs/Classic imp '99

My instrument cluster was looking very dull so I decided to replace the bulbs. Easy to do. The bulb for the fuel gauge and temp gauge is the same as the side light. The smaller warning light bulbs were fine but can be bought from halfords(509 T). Just pull the bulb from the plastic cradle and push in to the subaru cradle.
BUT where the hell do I get the speedo/rev counter bulbs? see pic. Can anyone help. I've searched tinternet.

Doing the job is very easy. No need to unplug the cluster just remove the top 2 screws from the cluster surround and unclip from bottom and remove.
4 screws hold the cluster in place. Once removed tip the cluster forward and pull towards you(with s/wheel at lowest pos.)
The bulbs can be removed without taking the cluster right out. Just rest it on top of the steering column.

New bulb for fuel/temp gauge=huge difference! nice n bright.
