Coffman,

The plug in your picture with the helmet and goggles, will fit perfectly into a 359 socket!

Not certain for sure ... but I think it was a cotton/copper mix that was highly flexible but impossible to solder. I think you will find that terminations were "whipped" ... But a Squipper will best to help

Sorry I should've mentioned the wire is connected to the modern jackplug. I got told to avoid using the original jackplug wire just for your reasons.

The copper-cotton wire is called Tinsel and the way I was taught to solder it during Air Comms Trade Training years ago was to take some finer single-strand tinned copper wire and gently wind it around the exposed conductor-cotton in a whipping fashion. Apply a tinned soldering iron to the whipping, wait until the insulating laquer 'burnt off' and apply fresh solder containing flux, covering the whipping. Remove from heat and cool. Cut off any whipping loose ends et voilą!
