Default Mayfair portable gramophone soundbox parts

This is a shot in the dark
I think the backplate and retaining ring may be missing or some other arrangment for holding it together.
Does anybody know where I could get hold of these parts?

The links in you post don't work.

All you have to do is paste the contents of the address bar into your post and the forum software will do the rest.

That doesn't work for me and gives a photo bucket error message.

Could be browser dependent. This is what I get using Microsoft Edge.

Works for me, and the first thing I notice is that you need a new metal diaphragm, the hole in the centre is too big to attach the needle bar to. What I can't understand is how the back plate attaches to the front. Are there any screw holes in either?

The diaphragm is damaged but could be bodged, but it's the missing components which present the biggest problem
There are no screw holes etc, I think there are parts missing such as front and back steel pressings which enclose and clamp what you see together

If this is not repairable where could I get a decent replacement?
