Not the best image but to-hand - I think this was from an Essex / early Compo Turbo - (Thanks to the LEW site). I don't think the space-saver changed much over the years....

Any chance you might be able to measure the offset? It's quite easy. If not don't worry I can use the offset measurement on my original spare, it would just be interesting to see if they are the same.

Measure the rim width and half it. This gives you the centre measurement then measure the distance to the wheel face  from the outer edge and subtract. Distance in mm is the negative offset. It looks to be quite a bit.
