This is the sidelamp that lives in the front bumper of my federal coupe. I think it is from a Spitfire.

For others interested in my reply, the answer is "yes", you can remove the wire/contact and the spring behind it, but you might have to cut the wire to allow the wire to slip through the rubber boot - the bullet connector will probably get in the way. The socket pictured is a spare that came with my car, the connector was already cut off.
Lights are used on some Spitfires (I think) and Saab Sonnets. Peg's looks to be a little different than mine, although the socket/contact/spring/wire assembly should be the same.
Hope this helps.
Edit: Let me add a couple of additional photos to show the rubber block that fits between the socket/lens/reflector/chrome keeper.
The socket shown above fits into the area on the left of the block. The rectangular area to the right is where the reflector, with a mounting screw on the back, fits. The lens the lamp shines through fits on the left side. Both the lens and reflector fit into a lip on the inside of the rubber block. The chrome retainer fits into a lip around the circumference of the rubber block. Friction retainment at its best (or worst, if the rubber loses its grip!). I couldn't readily find a lens or reflector to include in this post, they are buried somewhere in one of my piles of parts.
