Don,
     It's 7mm. You can get hex keys in that size from Sears - either in the store or on-line. If for some reason you want to get fancy, you can also get them from Snap-On, Facom or SK. Those would be hex keys or hex bit drivers for a 3/8 inch ratchet wrench.
     By the way, the old British system of bolt/nut measurements is Whitworth. :-D
