Hadlow Marine provide good service, but you'll need to phone with the order them unless they've updated their website.

Hi Paul
The screws are less than half the price of JR's and so the next question is do you know the size? The gentleman was quoting M5? Etc which means nothing to me!
Thanks
Kind regards
Anna 
Many thanks

Anna,

The screws on my 1974 boat 2BA x 7/32, (I assume at some point JR went metric?) but it looks like Hadlow hasn't got them in stock. So you may have to go for the nearest metric version. Alternatively, and because of the corrosion that happens on the internal frames, you can use longer screws with washers under the internal heads. In any case, if you're taking the windows out, you'll probably want some long screws to pull the inner lining back against the coachroof before you can fit the interscrews as the lining springs away when you release the windows. 
Are you going to fit Jeremy's very nice plastic covers? Very smart but of course at JR prices! 
There's also  a JR "how to" paper on the technical section of the website
