New flex on desk lamp - which wire goes where?

I cut the French plug off an old lamp thinking it would be an easy switch, then realised the flex was knackered and the wires aren't colour coded. I've bought a new 3 core flex here and want to check which wire goes where into the base of the lamp.

There are 2 coming down the stem of the lamp from the bulb: #1 goes to the on/off switch on the base - live? #2 is spliced into the flex  - neutral? #3 coming into the base from the flex just screws into the base - earth?

Just can't seem to find the answer on google! THANKS!
